I can try a post on comp.lang.perl.modules, and talk to the editor of about running an article on a Texinfo project.

That won't solve my problem with @node (adding an argument to it).

But this makes me think about a way of validating the parser. Does the
XML output contain the complete information of a texi file? The XML
converter is probably easy to write, if the new converter outputs
exactly the same XML as makeinfo for all the big GNU texi files
(especially makeinfo's, that one must be tricky), then we have a
reliable modern parser and that may motivate people to start writing
