Well, Debian was there first.  So actually, GNU should have used
another name.

I guess the best we can hope for is for the two implementations to
provide similar features, so that they can be used interchangeably.
My current pet peeve with the Debian version is that it doesn't
create dir files automatically.  Anyone care to ask them to add that
feature?

It's difficult to convince the Debian maintainers that there is
another info directory besides /usr/share/info, and that the whole
world does not consist of Debian packages.
