Thank you very much.  :)

Now, the only confusing thing remaining is: that scrolling doesn't
stop at the end of an index.

The idea is to have a default mode that is easy on newbies, which 
differs from both Emacs and vi.  Emacs users probably won't like 
the different default binding of the PageUp/PageDown keys either, 
so there should probably be an option --emacs-mode that switches
'info' back to the default Emacs key bindings.

By the way, why was the following change made:

-  N_("\\%-10[beginning-of-node]  Go to the beginning of this node.\n"),
+  N_("\\%-10[beginning-of-node]  Go to the beginning this node.\n"),

Also by the way, I think that the addition of "[*]    Command acts
within this node or the entire document, depending on the value of
cursor-movement-scrolls variable" is somewhat overkill for a concise
list of commands.

It is probably better to keep TAB and M-TAB together, and mention
RET after it.  Or leave M-TAB out altogether, as no one will know
how to type it without an explanation.
