I think this was implemented to work around bugs in older texinfo
distributions.  In particular, the `makeinfo` binary and the
`texinfo.tex` file often did different things; IIRC, the code above
ensured identical behaviour for HTML, info, and PDF output.

This has improved a lot meanwhile and could be simplified.
