bug#26299: 24.5; Use of `…' in Info

As one user, I find the adoption of `…' instead of `...' to be a
retrogression, not an improvement.  It is far less readable.  Just one

Compare, as one example among zillions:

 -- Macro: with-help-window buffer-name body…


 -- Macro: with-help-window buffer-name body...

I cannot imagine what someone thought, when making this change.  Did it
come just because we _can_ now use that Unicode character?  That's not
a reason that we _should_ use it in such contexts.
