Currently, in Info, a colon marks the end of the entry in a menu.  An
index is a long, automatically alphabetized menu.

If you change Info, what do you plan to use in place of a colon?

What do you plan to do for backwards compatibility, so that people's
existing dir files and other files?  (Even though I keep my system
pretty up to date, some of my info files were last modified three
years ago.)
