Right. If I modify the original info/dir file, such that "Info" is in
section "Texinfo documentation system", "tramp" is in "GNU Emacs", and
all the rest in "Emacs", then I get practically no duplicates.

(The one exception is "URL" which ends up in the strangely named
section "World Wide WebINFO-DIR-SECTION Emacs". Looks like the
duplicate @dircategory entries in doc/misc/url.texi are not allowed.
Trivial patch is attached.)

That doesn't help, unfortunately.
