The plan is to replace the makeinfo in C by texi2html that would become
makeinfo in perl that would be indistinguishable from makeinfo in C (except
for the incredible use of memory and CPU...). That's why Karl is not very 
eager to fix bugs in the makeinfo in C.

The info backend in texi2html is almost finished (maybe one or 2 weeks more
for bugfixing), all that remains to be done is achieve the 
indistinguishability which shouldn't be too hard.
