You are right of course, and GNU's insistence on stupid info format is 
terrible (yes, I hugely prefer manpages over info, even for massive 
manpages like bash; in ten years of my life with Linux, I have used bash 
info documentation twice at most), but give it up, this fight for common 
sense was lost. Just try to take it as a fact of our life ... there are 
volcanoes in Japan, wildfires in the Southern California, and GNU 
manpages suck. And don't try to argue against GNU Not being Unix, that 
sacred cow is very much part of our life as well.



P.S.: And as this is not an effort to ignite flamewar, just friendly 
reminder to Richard, I won't reply to anything in this thread.
