hm, something is missing in the mkii file

\unprotect \definepropertyhandler \v!stretch{0} \protect

(you can also tune the 'normal effect')

consider all this a hack, since tex does not know about the right 

in mkiv there's

\start \dosetstretch{.25em} \setuptolerance[tolerant,stretch] \input 
tufte \endgraf \stop
\start \dosetstretch{.5em} effe flink doorfietsen \stop

(not yet interfaced but it should work)
