Yeah, breadcrumbs now are not normal links and not a header-line.
But it's OK because when up/next/prev links are not in the header line
(when `Info-use-header-line' is nil) then TAB (`Info-next-reference')
doesn't go through up/next/prev links.  In this regard, they are like
breadcrumbs in an overlay.  There is one difference: it's possible
to type RET on up/next/prev in this case, but I think no one navigates
this way with the keyboard because it's too slow to move point
to a navigation link to type RET on it.

Actually, nothing interesting because I meant that with the `invisible'
text property any overlay inside it becomes invisible, and there is no
other free place to put overlay on.

Installed to the emacs-23 branch (with code for grey background commented out).
