Ah, excellent.  Again and again I learn that it is wrong to say "Emacs
doesn't do X" but instead I should ask "How do I do X in Emacs"?
I also hadn't even noticed that man actually reformats the page when the
width changes.  I have failed to find a hook for a change of window
width, but man.el simply uses an idle timer to check for changes.  I'll
adopt that in my code.

Many Thanks!
