[tex-k] An idea for texinfo

I'd like to implement a feature in texinfo that allows to set an info_path
constructed from PATH.
What I have in mind is roughly this:
If the info_path (from $INFOPATH + -d options + possibly the default path)
contains an element "PATH", that is replaced by a list constructed from the
individual elements path in $PATH as follows:
path="", path=".", path="./*" (or Windows equivalents)
=> the first existing directory among
and possibly also (inspired by man-db)
avoiding to add duplicates, e.g. from PATH="PREFIX/bin:PREFIX/sbin"
What do you think?
