Reiner, thanks.. lots of info there... sorry to be so dense but I'm
still not getting how these urls are generated.  Is it only done
manually? That is, one simply types out the url (info "(file)node") By
reading the top of an info page?

Trying a few of those using something like:
    M-x rs-info-insert-current-node 
or
    M-x rs-info-goto-node-string
Just shows no-match while inside info.

Yes, thats the one.  Can that be generated somehow or do we have to
type it out while referencing those elements on the top of an info
page?
