Re: rule for period and sentence ending

    The current rule for sentence ending is:

Sure, it's arguable, but I don't want to change it, partly because I
think Knuth made the right decision, partly because there's no way to do
things at the "word" level in TeX, and partly because it would introduce
a significant incompatibility in Texinfo with only a minor benefit.

There have always been commands to Texinfo to explicitly specify whether
a period ends a sentence or not, and using those is (and always has been)
the way to get the correct output.
