If we develop software to browse HTML manuals made by Texifo with all
the good features of info, then we can drop use of Info format.

Then there will be no reason to insist on one particular source format
for manuals for GNU packages.  We could allow any source markup format
that can generate the three kinds of output we want:

* Nicely formatted PS or PDF.  (Ideally, passed through TeX.)

* HTML used like Info version 2.

* Plain ASCII.

If Org format can do these jobs, they it would be one of the
acceptable source markup formats.
