Seems ok to me, but we'd have to put texinfo into Base, in that case.
Otherwise it won't get installed automatically, and _update_info_dir
would fail on a Base-only install.
Aside: since setup.hint allows comments (which do not clutter
setup.ini), we should probably annotate setup.hints whose requires: have
been...manipulated...in odd ways.
