Now that i have done a separate utility, it also seems to me that it 
would be very easy to integrate in texi2any, a bit like what is done for 
-E...  And it saves the trouble to reimplement the command line options.
The not so easy part would be deciding whether to use nodes or sections.
Indeed, the logic would be to let this be what the format would do and
this is not so easy.  I'll think a bit more about that.
