Somebody reading the Emacs manual presumably does so with the intent
of using emacs.  When using Emacs, he can read emacs-xtra using Info.
He can even print out hardcopy for emacs-xtra.  So things like this
should definitely _not_ be in @ifinfo.

   Alternatively, change all references to emacs-xtra to use @inforef.

That would be a lot better.

However, last time when I proposed something similar (for url.texi, if
I remember well), you and Karl and Dave opposed me on this and I wound
up using a regular @xref.  Did you change your mind on this or is
there a fundamental difference between emacs-xtra and url.texi?
