Are you saying that users could remember 'rebuild-info' better than
'install-info'? Or is it just that if by chance they can remember
'rebuild-info', that they don't have to use a man page.

My feeling is that if someone can't remember syntax, simply use

As far as the script that you mentioned setting a precedent, I
don't remember there being a discussion.

Is this just something that is not from the maintainer, but we
create/install it?

Is this one also so you doesn't have to remember syntax of an
already provided command?
