While you are looking at the code, there was another question on 
tex.stackexchange on bars:


How to get bars to work with leaders?

\overstrike{Hello\hfill world!} % Works OK

Hello\leaders\hbox{.}\hfill world! % Works OK, nothing special

\overstrike{Hello\leaders\hbox{.}\hfill world!} % Not quite right
