I don't necessarily see a problem, but I don't understand why you need
a .texi file for these overrides.  At least the "@set FOO" part of
those overrides can be easily handled by add -DFOO switch to

More generally, what is a user supposed to do if she does want to put
something on gnus-overrides.texi?  That's a versioned file, so "bzr
status" will show it as modified, and there's still a danger of having
it committed inadvertently.  How is this better than just modifying
gnu.texi or any other file directly?
