I wrote a script for this, but no one seemed to care for it.  I thought it
was a good thing too, needing only a simple switch/case statement.  Maybe
everyone was getting it confused with the first script I wrote which was a
bad thing.  If anyone has the gnu install-info options (i.e. the top of
the man page), send it to me and I'll repost the script for comment.
