Not necessarily.  The situation I bump into much more frequently is
when I update from CVS, then say "make info" with the Info manual
already loaded into one of my (many) Info buffers.

However, I don't think this is important enough to justify
over-optimization.  `T' is already a rarely used command (I bet many
users don't even know it exists); adding an Info file that is modified
under our feet makes it _extremely_ rare.
