OK, so a while back I rewrote all the string
substitution logic in the manpages stylesheet
to rely in part on a hack^H^H^H^Hmechanism I
wrote that exposes a "string substitution map"
as a stylesheet parameter that users can
modify. But actually it is probably safest
for users not to monkey around with the contents
of that unless they really know what they
are doing, because muffing that up with cause
all manner of chaos to ensue.

So, much better to make some empty-by-default
man.string.subst.map.local.pre and
man.string.subst.map.local.post hooks that get
called before the stock man.string.subst.map.
