The attached patch made against CVS fixes two issues:
- By default, "-" chars are interpreted as hyphens (U+2010) by groff,
not as minus signs (U+002D). Since options to programs use minus signs
(U+002D), this means for example in UTF-8 locales that one cannot cut
and paste options.
- A dot at the beginning of a line starts a comment. Thus the line is
not shown in your manual page. So in the patch the dot gets prepended by
a zero width space.

Let's not completely forget the possibility that roff implementations
other than groff might be used to process this document.
