By the way, this seems like a fundamental design problem with Info that
has been inherent in Info as far back as I can remember.  I believe I
ran into this same issue some 15+ years ago.  Basically, there should be
one dir-top file (that can be LANG localized) in Emacs and all other dir
files should be concatenated onto it.
