I can agree it's a bug, but makeinfo has always simply copied
"intraline" spaces ("Foo. Bar.") as-is, and I, at least, am not likely
to implement anything different in the foreseeable future, if ever.
makeinfo has no real understanding of text at all. I suppose something
like TeX's spacefactor codes is the most viable approach.
The reason double spaces are assumed/inserted is for support with Emacs
sentence commands, by the way. Supporting insertion of a single space
after sentences might not be too hard (a lot easier than spacefactors
Patches welcome :).
