If one must make a choice, then one should go for recent versions of
the tools. But if it is possible to be compatible with a wide range
of versions of, say, Texinfo, then that's even better. After all,
even developers don't always have completely up-to-date systems, and
it's inconvenient for them to constantly be upgrading their tools.

So if Bruce can fix our doc build system to be compatible with a
superset of what it's currently compatible with, then that's great.

Absolutely.
