Ah, so there is!  Sorry!

Maybe what the manual needs more than anything else is a top-level
complete table of contents listing every node in the menu (much like the
"The Detailed Node Listing" in the Emacs manual and so many other
wonderful texinfo-based manuals).  The texinfo index is wonderful, and
all, but it's just an index.  I've come to expect the detailed listing
and given there's no obvious way to restrict a search in 'info' to the
current node, or to headings only, it's hard to find a node that you
don't know exists.  I don't know if there are any existing tools to help
build the menu and detailed node listing, or not...
