Hi Pat,

    In general variables set by @set shouldn't
    have a specific meaning

Well, there are some special variables in texinfo.tex already, although
I guess I have not documented them, so they don't really count.  Anyway,
I don't see a reason to avoid it in principle.  It's a way to help with
compatibility.  Anyway, variable vs. new command is a side issue, I
didn't bring to bring that into the fray.

    If that command is set then -I is ignored ...

Hmm.  The right solution remains unclear to me.  I don't necessarily
think my proposal is right either.

Writing some clear specification/documentation of what we *want* to
happen, i.e., how we want users to control image dir prefixes in each of
the output cases, seems like the way to get a handle on this.  Do you
want to pursue that, or just let it lie?
