bug#31807: 27.0; `info-apropos' bad name or bad matching

See https://emacs.stackexchange.com/q/41993/105.

`info-apropos', as its doc string says, apparently does NOT do "apropos"
matching, i.e., regexp and keyword matching.  It apparently does literal
string matching against index entries in all of the manuals.

Perhaps either the name should be changed (to not use the word
"apropos") or the behavior should be changed, to allow apropos matching.
