Fonts too small make reading unpleasant
and from what I read, with texinfo you can
only change the font from 10pt to 11pt

considerations, tricks taken from the Internet and more ...
all this before you print!

I thought it was an easy thing to do ... as well as obvious!
You're right ... looks amazing having to lose so much time!
However, it seems to me reasonable to be able to modify the source
documentation of an open-source program using
a typesetting-language as powerful as LaTeX!
