Pong. Sorry for the delay.
I just reviewed the whole thread, and couldn't find the corresponding
ChangeLog, either yours or Gerritt's. I also couldn't find a consensus
that the patch will do what it's supposed to. Frankly, I still don't see
why you'd need anything more general than '-name "*.info*"', but I'm
willing to accept it if nobody else objects.

Yaakov's patch subsumes Max's. Once I have the ChangeLog, I'll commit it.
