This is achieved easily by marking news entries with ad-hoc tags, e.g. a
dummy Texinfo macro @frontpage before the NEWS items after first four
ones that you still want on the front page.  My RSS and front news
generation script supported this IIRC.

French dates are the exact reverse of SI dates, but I'm for SI dates
too.  The Python standard module I used in the RSS feed generation can
parse dates and format them to SI, so unless there is any objection I'll
take care of this.

Mmmh, yes, when macros for PDF format have been defined :-)
Anyway, it's already possible to generate crappy PDF output hopefully
without any error by setting PDF_FILES back to $(TEXINFO_MANUALS:%=
$(outdir)/%.pdf) in GNUmakefile.
