On our system, we have about 13 emacs-n info files (in addition to perl,
gdb, etc...).  They are roughly about 50K each.  This is consistent with the
emacs elisp function that performs the split at 50K + 1 node.

Since my patches split at 25K, twice as many files will be produced.  My info
naming convention can handle up to 999 files wich is equivalent to a 25 Meg
info file.  The .i?? naming convention can handle a 5 Meg info file using
emacs 50K default value.

Either way, I am not too concerned about it.  Besides, if the number of info
files gets too large, I will divide them up into directories.
