Ooops, no, I still get index_xx.html filenames for splitted translated
manuals.  In the process on solving this, I'm currently trying to make
extract_texi_filenames work (making systematic trailing spaces removal),
which implies in turn normalizing snippet titles (commas are forbidden
in node names, "@"commands are problematic because
extract_texi_filenames would have to know how to translate them into
plain text like texi2html)... I'll end up within two hours with a commit
on master that follows up your merging of the two init files.  In the
best case, we'll get working filenames for all manuals in all languages
within 2 or 3 hours.  In the worst case, I'll push a commit that lets
the doc build finish succesfully, with some number of broken HTML
filenames and links, hopefully not worse than what we had before.

... and whatever's necessary to allow me working on Texi2HTML init files
without losing the little Perl sanity I have :-P

I just got those word counts (that exclude Texinfo comments) from

251   web.texi
2399  web/community.itexi
1034  web/download.itexi
3647  web/introduction.itexi
1929  web/manuals.itexi
1059  macros.itexi
1670  po/lilypond-doc.pot (translate to po/@var{MY_LANGUAGE}.po)
---   lilypond-texi2html.init (section TRANSLATIONS)
12150 total

12000 words is a too big amount for one submission, I'll see how to
split this in two submissions.  I didn't include basic-authors.itexi,
which is currently a mess, nor news* files — BTW, why the mao are some
news files present in {nl,fr}/web that seems nothing else than copies of
the files in English?
