Since now fixes for info.texi are installed, I want to propose
a better node partition.  The main deficiency of the current partition
is that there are only two major top level nodes: `Getting Started' -
for novices, and `Expert Info' which mixes normal Info commands
that every user needs to know (such as search), and description of
the Info format with unnecessary information for most Info users.

The new node tree has three top nodes: `Getting Started' for novices,
`Advanced' for advances users, and `Expert Info' with the description
of Info internals.

The overlong node `Advanced' is split into `Go to node', `Choose menu
subtopic', `Edit document' and `Create Info buffer'.  The overlong
node `Info Search' is split into `Search Index' and `Search Text'.
The node `Emacs Info Variables' changes its place to be under
`Advanced'.  The node `Creating an Info File' moves under `Expert Info'.

I could submit a patch if this is ok.
