    I may not be the best person to answer that, but it is quite frequent
    in the GNU project to use software coming from outside of the GNU

That is true enough in general, but in the particular case of PCRE, it's
unlikely to work well.  GNU Grep tried to use PCRE for a while and it
turned out to be so problematic that it had to be removed.  As for
Texinfo, I don't see the need.  illusionoflife, if you're talking about
some other package, you should ask the developers of that package.
