Others pointed out that we generally prefer the `literal` formatting for
such options (with backticks), which I agree with. If your target is
formatting manpages (and not html), you may want to build with
MAN_BOLD_LITERAL set in the Makefile, which will embolden the literals
in the output (since we cannot typeset them in a monospace font on the
terminal, as we would for html).
