It was me who proposed a virtual node.  As for `apropos' I think it
would be good to collect a list of virtual query nodes and present them
in a menu in the top virtual node of the virtual manual `apropos'.

Since breadcrumbs code is installed, this is a good occasion to implement
building the node tree to improve its performance.

IIUC, there is no problem now.  The maximal level depth in Texinfo is 4.
So the current default breadcrumbs depth will display all nodes for the
maximal allowed depth.
