I don't suggest to make `C-h C-i' an official keybinding for `info'
by documenting it everywhere.  What I propose is only to add it
to help.el as a catcher for cases when users mistype `C-h i'
which now is very probable when switching between Info buffer with
key sequences like C-1 C-h i C-2 C-h i C-3 C-h i C-4 C-h i C-5 C-h i.

If we find a better use for `C-h C-i' later, we can freely rebind it,
since we don't advertise it as an official keybinding for `info'.
