     I could distribute just the .texi.in file and still get
     autoreconf/automake/packaging to work. Right now, I get an error
     about a missing .texi file

I thought Mike's fix (-e ... /dev/null) should already have fixed that?

 Well, to be honest, I simply made the fix for the code that was
present in the repo, assuming it would behave the same as the official
version. Indeed, it seems that it works even without my fix. Oh well,
at least one more chance to get the output filename (if present).

Well, in any case, it's not bad to check for the .texi.in, so I'm happy
you posted about it.

     > echo '@setfilename bar.texi' >foo.texi
     Shouldn't the above read "bar.info" instead of "bar.texi"?

Oops, certainly so! Sharp eyes. Fortunately in my actual test file I got
it right, so I think my description of the (non-)behavior I saw still
stands ... --thanks again, karl.

 OK, better typo in a mail than in the repo/docs.

P.S. Still working on several more patches from you. Thanks for all!

 Nice to hear :). It's good that you check them so thoroughly, not
just the code but also asking "is this the way it should work?".
