  Well, although I cannot use it right now, I would hate to see it go
  because it is the only solution there is to have really anything in
  node names.

  The current solution I use is to replace problematic characters by
  ugly sequences like <dot>, and soon by Unicode characters looking like
  the original ones (Cf. the paper I sent you the other day). But these
  solutions prevent readers from cut'n pasting the node names and get
  the real thing.

  I'll try to patch the Emacs mode one of these days to make it support
  the DEL trick. Requesting a recent Info reader / Emacs mode is a price
  I'm willing to pay in order to have really free node names.

Resistance is futile. You will be jazzimilated.
