    The usual reason, today, why there are manuals in multiple
    directories is because of incompatibilities between packages.
    In other words, it is an accident.

That is one reason.  But the main reason I personally have seen is not
accidental at all -- it is so sysadmins can keep locally installed
manuals separate from those installed with the system.  Otherwise, you
lose your local dir file entries when system upgrades are done.

Anyway, I'll work on changing standalone info to do the merging.
Hopefully someone here can fix info.el in emacs (which is far more
widely used).
