I discovered this feature after reading the Info documentation but never
used it.  However, I see it could be useful when done right, i.e. if all
inter-node navigation worked even on a multi-node buffer (so `u' inside
one node moves point to the position of the beginning of its parent node
in the same buffer with all nodes, etc.)
