While we're at it, much of the markup could be removed.  The
manpage is partially unreadable because too many words have markup
(especially for the style command).

(Also, the Style docuementation should possibly be put in a
separate manpage.  The monolithic manpage is intimidatingly large.
Even I am reluctant to use it.  Maybe like the zsh manpages: One
manpage per larger topic, and if you really insist on an ugly big
one, there's also "man fvwmall".  Should be generated from a
single source though.)

Sounds good.  If we could add the emacs config for that at the
start of the file that would help.  (Just press alt-q to reformat
a block.)
