We want texi2html to split based on whether a node has a number or not.
Currently it can split by chapter, section, or node.  It should be
"easy" to do this using the element_file_name function:

Attached an example .texi file for testing.

If you're serious about this, then we'll probably find a bunch of other
errors after this is fixed.  I spent quite a few hours working on
texi2html last Oct, and the maintainers fixed a bunch of bugs for me,
so I feel a bit bad that we never actually switched.  However, we can't
switch until texi2html handles everything that makeinfo --html does.
