This would only work within the same document (where it already works out of 
the box anyway). For cross-manual links, there would need to be multiple runs 
and this data would need to be written out to a temp file after each manual 
is converted to HTML. Each manual would then need to read in all other such 
temp files and heavily customize the way cross-refernces are generated.

Of course. It simply takes the full html name of the taget.
But as I said, that's added by my init script for texi2html, so we can easily 
disable adding $(LANG) to the suffix.

The needs to be adjusted to texi2html anyway (e.g. the 
footer can be automatically added directly by texi2html, the <body> tag gets 
some arguments automatically so that the splitting at </?body> no longer 
works, etc.).
