Folks, LilyDev is mainly intended for those developers who are not
native/regular GNU/Linux users.  Having them pin packages and add
non-standard sources is a great idea for getting their systems into a
state from which they cannot recover themselves and which nobody else
can diagnose without an account.

Let's just not rush requiring new Texinfo features.
