Gnus is not the only package to avoid `.info' as an extension. Moreover,
DJGPP might use different extensions.

Personaly, I think that our info.el tries to be too clever, but I also
think that PGnus shouldn't mess around with makeinfo's output file name.
Nothing wrong, there. Gnus is not messing with output file names, as
`makeinfo' default is a proposal, not a standard. A lot of Info files
do not (or did not?) have `.info' extension anyway. Maybe that `.info'
as an extension became mandated? That would be new to me, but I'm not
following everything. Cc:ing to Karl, who might have an opinion on this.
