troff is a waste of time and impedes documentation by being obscure and
requiring real training at first. Rewrite man pages in plain text format and use
help2man or asciidoc or whatever generator to obtain man pages.

I agree on the awkwardness of man pages. However, this seems so  
low-prio, I am tempted to close this bug and tag it as "wontfix".  
(Personally, I maintain troff pages manually and am happy with it  
quite fine. Not much a greater pain than coding html manually, IMHO).

;-)
Mike

That's why I set myself as bug owner. Don't worry about it.
