Chuck has made my point about multiple packages doing this.
As for some standard bit of machinery sure... There's this thing called
a postinstall script ;}.
Seriously though, setup would have to call out to ash to run a
dynamically created install-the-info-files script anyway, so having this
done directly makes to me. I've no strong opinion though, with one
caveat: whatever does it , must call install-info (ie no patches to make
setup.exe contain install-info's functionality, thank-you-very-much.)
