Trying it unveiled a fair share of bugs.  All should be fixed now.



is a link to perldelta.pod, so you could have to remove the link in order 
to proceed with all the files while avoiding duplicate nodes.

I attach the script I use, and also an enhanced script to convert each
.pod to a standalone texi.

There are still some issues, one is the incorrect handling of X<> in title
bu PullParser, that I reported and will hopefully be fixed.

The other issue is that there are some automatic anchors with only the
first word of an =item added automatically.  I tried to raise that issue
on the pod-people mailing list, but there was some discussion but no
definitive decision (or I missed something).
