    Consider this file, if you remove the @ignore block, texi2dvi does not
    compile.  Same for \\WHAT.

Sigh.  It seems macro expansion is totally broken in texinfo.tex right
now, for any macro with arguments.  Just the constant 

@macro refcommand{WHAT}
@end macro

goes into an infinite loop expanding the macro.  I'll look at that.

Meanwhile, texi2dvi -E seems to do the right thing with
@cindex @code{\\\WHAT\}

Eli may be right that it would be more logical to use findex instead of
shoving them into cp?  Has nothing to do with the problem at hand,
