The fix, if it is accepted, involves changing some of the calls to
trampfn into calls to on of 2 or 3 other (new) macros.  I don't see
anything non-trivial here, certainly not something that could
potentially destabilize the branch.  But it's your call.

This argument goes both ways: since they are pre-built, any problems
with the non-trivial fix will be solved before the release is tarred.
The advantage is that users can modify the manual and still produce
the Info files.
