Come to think of it, why not automatically add clickable references from
doc-strings into the info manual?  That seems like it would be pretty
easy to do, since the necessary information is already there.

`Info-goto-emacs-command-node' already does something similar for
commands (though in a slightly less convenient way).  I don't know
whether the method Info-goto-emacs-command-node uses would be best for
doing all functions; maybe it would be better to just run a build-time
script that extracts the references from the .texi files and actually
embeds it into the doc-strings.
