Great, thanks.

As for your patches, I think that the first two (getting rid of the
regex engine and the incomplete implementation of autodep: lines) are
non-controversial and should be applied.

I still don't think the triggers should be implemented or at least not
in the way you've been proposing.

I've meanwhile looked a bit deeper on what it would take to update the
info dir using perpetual scripts and it seems it is about the same
effort as the incremental autorebase.  The easiest path would be to keep
the script the same as it is now and just check if a package with info
files got installed or removed.  But it would be possible to just add /
remove the corresponding entries with a bit more bookkeeping.  I'll try
something of that, but not immediately.
