I agree that is even better; I guess I was aiming at minimal changes,
plus the footnote indexing thing seemed an interesting challenge...

Hm, but the version in my patch does seem to work correctly, i.e. it is
exported as (snipped)

 You need to exit by pressing @kbd{C-c '} again@footnote{@cindex escape 
 @cindex comma
 Upon exit, lines starting with @samp{*}, @samp{,*}, @samp{#+} and @samp{,#+} 

... which seems to produce a valid info file (looks the same as before
and the index entries work). Is it just a corner case, not a feature?

(I'm merely being curious at this point, I agree your version is better.)

Thank you.
