Thanks.  Inspite of looking into the documentation, I've missed this.

Well, using `\\q' instead of `\q' in your demo example works for the
CVS version of texinfo.tex to produce `\q', however, both the 4.13 and
the CVS version of makeinfo produce `\\q' (using --force), which is
wrong.  In other words, there has been an backwards incompatible
change within texinfo.tex (to follow the documentation) but apparently
makeinfo hasn't been fixed yet to do the same...

Am I missing something?
