I once did a check of all the install-info calls in Debian/sid and most
were just created by dh_installinfo, so without any special options.
Only emacs and maybe 3-5 other packages did something special. So I
guess we can leave *these* packages to fix the entries in the info file
itself instead of changing the title etc in the install-info call.

Well, the idea was that the dir file is recreated every time. That would
not need any special thing.
