Overkill it may be, but I really think that mkdoc would be more
complicated if it had to output another file to pass to texinfo,
compared to the case where mkdoc puts everything it processes into a
single file.

stack-checking thing first.)

If that were feasible, we could just use findutils to find the files. :-)
