                 Summary: 'grog' emits confusing warnings for some man pages

Here's an example:

grog -Tascii man1/gdb.1
ms requests found, but file name extension was: man
groff -T ascii -ms man1/gdb.1

('grog' from Groff 1.22.3 outputs "groff -man" instead, btw.)

This warning is confusing, since no file with a .man extension is anywhere in
sight.  I guess this means it found macros both from 'man' and 'ms'?  If so,
it should say so.
