I've got a cold, so I thought that it might be fun to have a look at
some of the byte-compile warnings to see whether there's any low-hanging
fruit that could be easily fixed.  Because warnings are an annoyance
when building Emacs, and hide real problems.

But, of course, I have questions:

In Info-edit:
info.el:4415:4:Warning: ‘Info-edit-mode’ is an obsolete function (as of 24.4);
    editing Info nodes by hand is not recommended.

which is

(make-obsolete 'Info-edit-mode
               "editing Info nodes by hand is not recommended." "24.4")

(defun Info-edit ()
  "Edit the contents of this Info node."
  (message "%s" (substitute-command-keys
                 "Editing: Type \\<Info-edit-mode-map>\\[Info-cease-edit] to 
return to info")))

(put 'Info-edit 'disabled "Editing Info nodes by hand is not recommended.
This feature will be removed in future.")

(make-obsolete 'Info-edit
               "editing Info nodes by hand is not recommended." "24.4")

etc etc etc.  All the Info-edit stuff was declared obsolete in 24.4, and
I seem to recall that our policy for removing obsolete stuff is two
release cycles?  (I couldn't find anything in admin/notes that said
anything about this explicitly...)  So it OK to remove all the Info-edit
modes and commands now?
