`C-h i' displays an Info buffer in the same window, so `C-u N C-h i'
should display `*info*<N>' buffer in the same window as well.  This was
achieved by removing `*info*' from `same-window-buffer-names' and adding
`*info*<[0-9]+>' to `same-window-regexps'.

A side effect of this is the changed behavior of `M-n' which now
displays a new cloned buffer *info*<N> in the same window.

Actually there is no problem with this, but I thought that some users may
want to display a cloned buffer in another window.  This can be done by
creating a new keybinding `C-x 4 M-n' to `clone-indirect-buffer-other-window'.
Of course, every user who wants this can put this binding to .emacs,
or to remove `*info*<[0-9]+>' from `same-window-regexps'.
