I was wrong. I had forgotten that I had (trivially) redefined
`Info-mouse-follow-nearest-node' to accept the optional FORK arg and pass it
to `Info-try-follow-nearest-node'. The reason my code was no longer working
was that I had made another, conflicting mouse binding elsewhere - my bad.

It works fine now. Attached are patches for info.el and etc/NEWS to add
these two commands:

* Info-follow-nearest-node-other-window
* Info-mouse-follow-nearest-node-other-window

It binds the former to `S-RET' and the latter to `S-down-mouse-2'.

Change log entry:

* info.el (Info-follow-nearest-node)
  (Info-mouse-follow-nearest-node): New commands,
  bound to S-RET, S-down-mouse-2.
