Everything is in the subject!

The attached patch defines `info-other-frame' and bind it to `C-x 5 i'. It also bind `info-other-window' to `C-x 4 i'.

I know that `info-other-window' is already bind to `C-h 4 i' but I found it more difficult to remember than the key binding which use the ubiquitous `C-x 4' keymap.
