Help is always appreciated :).

Thanks for the report.  This is currently a misfeature of texinfo.tex.
To do it right we must use marks to define chapter names/numbers for
the purposes of headlines/footlines.  I can easily add support for
chapter names/numbers, but I see that texinfo.tex also defines section
name (@thissection).  So, I'm not sure whether I should also define
@thissection through marks, given the fact that it's not even
documented.  (Besides, I suspect other macros (\setref?) rely on it
being defined the way it is defined now.)  Karl, wdyt?

Also, regarding macro names.  Since @thischapter and friends would
change the timing of their definition, I wonder if we should add new
commands instead, maybe @pagechapter, etc.?  That is, @thischapter
would be used in text (page body), and @pagechapter would be used in
headlines (during output routine).  Karl, do you think anybody ever
uses the @thischapter macros in body text?
