The task started by Thomas S. Dye a couple years ago is now complete.
The "manual.org" file in "contrib/" directory is an up-to-date,
sometimes enhanced, version of the Org manual. Org can now eat its own
dog food.

During the process, I had to re-organize some parts of the manual (e.g.,
"Working with source code" section, the concept index...) and improve
the "texinfo" export back-end, which was not up to the task when Thomas
started it.

Ultimately, this file is going to serve as the source for a new
"org.texi". IOW, it could go into "doc/" and "make info" should export
"manual.org" to "org.texi". First, however, it would be nice to review
it, either as an Org file, or within the Info viewer, with

   (require 'ox-texinfo)


   `C-c C-e i o' from "manual.org".

Note that Info output is expected to be sometimes different from the
current manual. This is not a 1:1 conversion.

Feedback welcome!
