	\url seems to mostly solve the problem, as long as one uses latin/ 
computer modern.  if you want to use another font, then you get  
overfull hboxes.
	What I did to solve that problem for this document (admittedly this  
is kludgy) was to set the monospace font to be the same as the roman/ 
main font.  The breaks worked out nicely then.  But any other  
solutions for non-c/l modern?
