Well, yes, but there's not much you can do in the justifying case, I
believe, since both underfull and overfull lines give horrible
results.  The `url' package also provides a means to insert some
inter-character spaces, but this looks even worse IMHO :-/

You mean how to code it internally?  I can't help, sorry, since my
knowledge of `texinfo.tex' is too limited.

For the interface to @url, I can imagine something like
address@hidden' and address@hidden' as an equivalent to the
`hyphens' option.
