And that's a problem. The fact that so many core Emacs contributors stick with Texinfo 4 is not only a technical problem (Texinfo 4 doesn't check syntax typos as well, it is still quoting 1970s-style, etc.), it's a marketing problem as we're giving potential contributors the impression that our development process has ossified.
