In Info format, you won't see any difference, because @var up-cases
its argument in that format.  But in the printed manual the visual
appearance of @var is very different: it gives the argument the
slanted typeface and doesn't up-case it.

How about using just "C-c C-c r" and letting it intuit the exact form
from the context?  @xref is only used at the beginning of a sentence,
and @pxref should normally follow an open paren.

In any case, adding this to texinfo.el would be a welcome addition, I
think.

The patch LGTM, thanks.
