I looked at this possibility, but it does not seem to work;
woman-man-buffer assumes that nroff inserts page numbers at the end of
the line, but that's not the case with modern nroff (depending on the
output device, I assume).  For instance, the getch manpage only displays
"getch(3NCURSES)" as non-space characters in the footer line.  How are
we going to detect that this is a footer?
