Are you joking?  Is requiring an officially released version and not
supporting a version from CVS excessive?  We have no control on
Texi2HTML development, and in particular on its customization interface.

I wish Texi2HTML was written in Python (or any other high-level language
with few confusing implicit constructs), but it's written in Perl.

As Texi2HTML weighs 500 KB (more than 22000 lines of code, which is
roughly as much as Makeinfo in C!!!), so it's been decided not to
include it.
