What about @verb?  I have no idea what @verb inside @w does, but I think
instead warn.  It would also be in line with the manual

It is not reliable to use '@verb' inside other Texinfo constructs.
In particular, it does not work to use '@verb' in anything related to
cross-referencing, such as section titles or figure captions.

It is likely that \verb in \hbox breaks in LaTeX and I wouldn't be
surprised if it did not work in TeX either.
