The HTML and Info formats are there because "makeinfo" can generate
them immediately.  The tool also supports DocBook and some sort of
"native" XML format.  Converting HTML -> MediaWiki is the approach
that's most likely to have a solution already.  Failing that, the
next-best approach is probably a custom XML -> MediaWiki converter.  I
don't know how much effort that would be.

However, getting the updated TeXinfo documentation into MediaWiki is
secondary to getting it into the Sawfish distribution itself.
