I just hacked on this for an hour. Now I have it using the url
package, which has been out since 1999 with no change and should be
available everywhere. The url package implements a special \verb
command that allows for breaking of text at specified characters.
There's now lots of ugly cruft in E3Doc.sty to implement appropriate
breaking for inline Lisp-like text and for pathnames. The inline
Lisp-like text is still using the \lisp command. The \path command
has been flushed because it is defined both in url.sty and in PicTeX.
Instead a \pname command is implemented using url styles. RTFS for
Next I intend to attack multipage tables. This should kill most of
the overfull boxen we're seeing.
