     That is a nice idea.  But that feature would replace the functionality
     currently implemented by recinf.

That was my intention :)
     Moreover, recinf is its present form is still pretty simple, but the
     original idea was to extend it to provide more useful global information
     about the database.  Things like accessing the list of types defined in
     the file.

Fine.  If it's going to be extended, then it'll be worth keeping.  But like
you say, in it's present form, it doesn't do much.
