I'm honestly not sure which would be easier. However, an important
goal, for me at least, is to make the FSF happy enough to accept
DocBook as an alternative standard format for GNU project
documentation. With that in mind, I e-mailed Richard Stallman and
asked him if he would consider DocBook -> Info sufficient. I will post
again when I receive his reply. (Hopefully a db2texi list will exist
by then.)
