FWIW, while I don't hold Texinfo very dearly in my heart, I have some
real problems with labeling it as nothing else than "old-technology".

There are newer tools, of course, but it's not like they're so much
incredibly better that Texinfo is just "old-technology".

CVS is old-technology.  I could even agree that Emacs is old-technology
(with its perks, obviously), but I don't see what so fundamentally
different between Texinfo and newer formats to justify such
a characterization.
