You might be able to do it, but then I'd have to kill you ;)

Besides, the info client can read man pages already. Anything beyond
that can't be done automatically, as the style of info documents is
different to man pages (man pages go for simplicity and quick reference,
info documents are vast sprawling hypertext things).
