Very cool! So we may soon be able to make a PDF of the French user
manual without encoding conversion.

By internationalization, I mean any mechanism that helps translating
documentation written in Texinfo and integrating them with the English
documentation, like what is done for Lily documentation. Of course, much
of this integration is too specific to be provided by Texinfo, but IMHO
it would be very cool that Texinfo can output HTML docs with links
between the same page in different languages and same file names
prefixes for all languages regardless of the node names.

(I'm not sure my explanation makes sense, and of course that's more easy
to say than to do...)
