Subject: How to show URL after link text for PDF output from Docbook 5.0?

We have switched to a Docbook 5.0 toolchain with xsltproc and FOP recently.
All problems regarding output formatting (especially PDF) could be solved
with one exception.

For nearly all external links we want our destination URLs to be shown after
the link text in PDF output and could find no way to do that with Docbook
5.0CR4, docbook5-xsl 1.72.0 and FOP 0.93. ulink.show does not seem to work
anymore, i assume because ulink should be dead in Version 5.
We also have some exceptions to this rule, so a solution an a per-link basis
would be preferrable for us over a global transformation setting. 

Our links all look like this:


and the output in PDF should look like this:

      XML-File (http://parlament.gv.at/path/to/doku/DocName.xml)

with the destination URL shown after the link text.

We did this before with Docbook 4.2 and a LaTeX toolchain but with the new
toolchain we could find no working solution. I have already searched the
documentation and the forums, but could find no working solution.
Any help on this would be appreciated.
