Re: Intention to re-write /usr/sbin/install-info

	Making a dummy install-info script would not allow people to
 use the GNU packages if their path variable was set incorrectly. I
 strongly object to two programs with the same name having different
 behaviour on the system. By all means phase in the use of
 dinstall-info, and have it disappear at some point in the future (any
 packages not converted will break at that point, so be it). 

	This may well make Debian un-upgradeable (bad idea), but it is
 better than the kludge entioned before, where the system behaviour is

 Drawing on my fine command of language, I said nothing.
