    groff_man(7): Recast explanation of \& escape.
    Per suggestion from Ralph Corderoy, remove enumeration.
    Recast while I was at it, with an eye to further precision, so the
    example can more easily be discarded later if desired.
    Use the term "roff" in favor of "troff" in this context, per groff(7).
    Also Add Vim modeline.
