info pages in Yelp (search shortcut)

Bug Description


I'm using Yelp 2.14.2 with Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
I sometimes write things like "man apt-get" in the search textbox
I think it could be a good idea to have such a shortcut for info pages
for example writting "info make" will show the info page of make

yes "info:make" works fine

but I wonder why "man:make" and "man make" are working both but not "info make"
That's just a minor feature to add in Yelp...
