That's what I thought you get.  And that's what I'd expect: the quotes
aren't typeset in the fixed-width font, exactly as when the
surrounding text is in roman.  The quotes are typeset in the same font
as the surrounding text.

If the results look ugly, perhaps texinfo.tex should allow some
mini-spacing between the quotes and the body of @samp.  But I'd expect
TeX itself to do that: isn't this exactly a job of a typesetting
