No, I'm trying to arrive at a solution that would allow several
versions of the same manual to be installed, and perhaps even used

The problems with Debian installation appeared because they tried to
solve that same problem, but couldn't do that with the current tools,
because Info wasn't designed for that.

Unless we change something, the only solution for the Debian
installation problem is to leave a single version installed and delete
all the others, or at least remove them from the DIR file.
