In my plain-TeX days I used \ignorespaces all over in definitions of
\section and \subsection for that purpose.  Eventually that and other
formatting code got too messy (the worst was after I hacked up a \url
macro).  So rather than reinvent many wheels badly, I switched to

So thanks for the rapid fixes, to that one and to the overfull hbox
from the indented \strut.
