Hi Jose,

    Hm, I am so used to see that way of documenting the long option
    names in the coreutils manual that I used it without thinking... 

I was not aware that coreutils.texi used @kbd for long option names.  It
didn't when I wrote up documentation for it originally, a long time ago.
It doesn't make any sense to me.  I'll ask.

I guess the use of @w{--long-option-name} (a separate issue from @kbd),
especially in the middle of a paragraph, is understandable, since it is
one way to avoid line breaks at the hyphens (in TeX, anyway).  

@allowcodebreaks false
would be cleaner though.
