   Doesn't the stand-alone reader handle this correctly?  (I don't
   remember.)  If it does, we could do something similar in Emacs.

The user invokes `f' and starts typing in the minibuffer.

If the node is not unique because the _file_ is not unique, the
stand-alone reader chooses a node based on the value of point in the
*info* buffer.

But the user is entering input in the minibuffer.  Hence I believe it
would make more sense to ask for extra characters, as `f' does in all
other situations where the node can not be uniquely determined by the
minibuffer contents.
