Yeah, I agree, I looked briefly at the classes that implement pydoc,
and they already have a hierarchy for generating to different forms of
output. One for text and one for html, so it should definetively be
doable, let's say another subclass for texinfo. That has to be
compiled/processed in some way to make info files?

The problem is that I don't know the first thing about texinfo and all
that stuff so I'll have to check out that first, but it sounds a bit
daunting with makeinfo and tex. I'd like to do some work on it but
I'll probably stop because there seems to be too many issues at the
time being. There is a version for java that I thought I could check
out to see how they've done it, but then I'll have learn and setup a
java environment before I can make use of it <sigh>
