While we're at \verb anyway, did anyone [with actual familiarity of
extending TeX] investigate any further the feasibility of the mechanism
that I sketched in my mail to this list of 13 Jun 2001?

Although the particular problem that motivated that suggestion was
language-tagging in multilingual documents, I did remark that one could
just as well use it to implement a \verb command that _would_ work in the
arguments of commands. (This is of course not practically possible in a
non-extended TeX.)
