IIRC, Emacs's Info reader already allows the `dir' file to contain several
nodes, just like any other Info package.  Since I've never seen such
a `dir' file, I have no idea whether it works or not.

Another alternative is to have Info do an index search on some of the
entries if nothing was found in the `dir' file.
Which entries should be auto-searched this way could be specified via any
number of ways.

BTW, why does `info FOO BAR' only look for BAR in the menu of FOO instead
of (or additionally to) looking for it in the Index?
