RE: enhancement request: have inverse of Info-last - as in Web brower Fo

Yes, I'm aware of the stack being popped by `l', and the existence of `L'
and Info-history-list.

`L' corresponds to opening a History pane (frame) in a browser. It's not the
same thing as having Back and Forward buttons (keys).

For instance, I have `l' bound to mouse-4, which is bound by default in a
Web browser to Back. I would like to bind mouse-4 and mouse-5 to true Back
and Forward commands that navigate down and up Info-history-list.

I can no doubt write code for this myself, but it would be better to have it
in Emacs, for everyone.

Thanks,

  Drew

This is not possible with the `Info-history' variable since it
actually is a stack, not a list of all visited nodes.  However,
in CVS there is a new internal variable `Info-history-list' which
holds a list of all visited nodes and which is used by the `Info-history'
command (bound to `L').  You could try it and see if you still think
`Info-forward' is needed.
