I haven't played with texinfo 5 yet, so I cannot say too much. But the
idea of @trampfn was to have just one unique macro with plays for
all. Before changing this, I would like to check with texinfo 5 whether
it is still possible. If I understand Glenn correctly, we have no rush
for the emacs-24 branch (please correct me if I'm wrong).

Best regards, Michael.
