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.

As Thomas mentioned I had originally written the exporter.  I'd done my best
to get it to work with the majority of the org.texi however there were certain
features that did not seem to be present at the time in Org  (or at least no
convenient method to simulate them without macros).

I haven't had the chance to keep up with the exporter or the export engine in
general, however I'm glad that the manual now can be entirely written in Org.
That was part of the motivation behind writing the exporter in the first place.
