I regularly update texinfo.tex in Lily sources from Texinfo CVS -- last
time was this morning -- so bugfixes will quickly show in PDF output
anyway, and we're going to switch to texi2html for translated docs, so I
don't think it's so urgent. Anyway, Texinfo 4.12 is planned for very
soon (current pretest is 4.11.95).

Bugfixes in Texinfo PDF output will actually show up in officially
distributed docs. As for HTML output, I hope we'll be able to switch to
texi2html before 2.12 -- this should even be a thing to be done before
