I have just a minute for a quick glance and it looks very well done.  I
will spend some more time looking through it later.

The man pages integrate quite well, IMO.

For the most part, yes.  I'm still undecided on the Texinfo part, though
it may serve as the portion that ties everything together.  I have man
pages for utility programs of the project and will be writing man pages
for the C library.  Being able to collate this nicely would be a great
benefit.  Ideally, if the same sort of collation could be done with
HTML, that would be perfect.

I'm not in a hurry.  :-)  I have many other things to do first.
