Hi Werner,
with the last fixes in texinfo.tex, the output looks much better now,
the @verbatim indentation is fixed, the URL spacing is sometimes better,
sometimes worse than with the old texinfo.tex version, IMHO.
The issue with the additional space in front of manually sorted index
entries is fixed for
most entries, the problem persists for entries like

@funindex @sortas[fooA} foo
@funindex @sortas{fooB} \foo

I tried to understand how this whole macro expansion magic works,
reading the 'TeXbook' back and forth, but this is currently beyond my

Do you think this one can be regarded as a regression in texinfo.tex, too?
I'm asking, because I was not sure, if the way we use the @sortas macro
is intended.
(Defining our own macro @funindex that uses @sortas and then putting in
another @sortas
between @funindex and the argument...)


The index changes look fishy, too: Everything typeset in typewriter is
indented incorrectly by a space.
Regarding this one: My new best friend git-bisect says that
introduced the misaligned index entries, which seems reasonable to me
(being a TeX-newbie...)

Maybe this interferes with the definitions in common-macros.itexi
that you already mentioned in your patch...
Nope, this can be reproduced with pure texinfo.
