Are there any other opinions?  For now, the opinions are 5:3 in favor
of keeping the pre-7.1 behavior of producing Unicode characters,
i.e. in favor of adding "-c ASCII_DASHES_AND_QUOTES=0" to our makeinfo
options.  If no other opinions will emerge within a few days that
change this picture, I will add that switch to our Makefile's.

Note that users can always countermand this by saying

  make INFO_OPTS='--no-split -c ASCII_DASHES_AND_QUOTES=1'

when they build Emacs.
