I improved a little the patch [1] and committed to SVN. It now allows:
 - mnesia <-- this calls mnesia:system_info(all)
 - mnesia info <--- this calls mnesia:info()
 - mnesia anythingelse <--- this calls mnesia:system_info(anythingelse)

And the help message shows:
  mnesia [info]                           show information of Mnesia system

Reasons for that change:
Most admins will usually try either:
 - mnesia
 - mnesia info
The experienced admins that know additional infokeys (learned from
erlang documentation) can request specific data with:
 - mnesia anythingelse

> % ejabberdctl ejabberd at host1 mnesia info

This remains the same in SVN:
% ejabberdctl ejabberd at host1 mnesia info

> % ejabberdctl ejabberd at host1 mnesia system_info running_db_nodes

This is a little shorter now:
% ejabberdctl ejabberd at host1 mnesia running_db_nodes

And if you forget the infokey you want, no need to check erlang
documentation: you can get all the keys. For example I do:

$ sudo ejabberdctl mnesia
 {db_nodes,[ejabberd at localhost]},

And now that I saw all the keys, I remember what I really want:
$ sudo ejabberdctl mnesia directory
