    We could surround the non-Texinfo parts by @ignore address@hidden ignore.  
    we could use directives inside comments as in "@c something".

It is an idea worth considering.  It assumes you do NOT run
Makeinfo on the Texinfo file but rather use a completely separate
parser.  I am not sure that is the right way to do it.

However, using it this way can't be right:

    @ignore @c assistant

    @node Hello, choose a server

    @variable server :string "default.server.com"


    You can define the server: @variable{server}

    @end text

    @end ignore @c end assistant

It would not make sense to put a @node command into
the @ignore.  There's no sense using @node unless you want
node structure, and @ignore thwarts that.  Only specific
directives for the assistant structure should be marked
as comments.

@c would probably be more convenient for that.

The other alternative is to run the Texinfo text thru Makeinfo.
Then you need to mark the data for the assistant using things
that will feed into the output.  I think that way is easier.
