Ah, thanks, my too limited understanding of the init file made me
downcase only in texinfo_file_name when returning the filename, which is
not enough.

No, the map files are in out-www/xref-maps.  I don't know how you got
the low-case filenames working without knowing this :-)

Maybe, but AFAIK you're not setting a joint supervision between two
bureaucratic countries, the most bureaucratic one being maybe France :-P

It will take me dozens of hours to understand Texi2thml init scripts
well and then a few extra hours to do the planned
changes/bugfixe/cleanups.  I'm not making any demand, I'm just
complaining about the time and effort I will have to spend for this.
Anyway, I don't understand well this diatribe here: I never suspected
you of casting any dirty look when you were complaining about the build
system complicatedness (or whatever the maoing correct term in English

Probably.  I think I identified the problem, but it will takes me a
couple of hours to get deep enough into the init file to be able to
solve this.

Don't be afraid of this, we have many ongoing LilyPond tasks that would
been enough even if we worked full time on it, I wrote my previous
message under pressure before going to Paris.

This is well said.
