Ok, Emacs should be able to automatically switch on or off the menu (and
perhaps the tool bar) depending on the mode of a buffer.

Info mode should understand the contemporary key bindings M-left and
M-right to go back and forth in the history.  (Those are bound to
movement by word, which is probably not extremely useful in info

Should I make a feature request?
