    groff_me(7): Fix content nits.
    * Clarify that vertical space suppression at the tops of pages applies
      _after_ any page header is formatted.
    * Drop sentence about preprocessor output being "accepted" as input.  A
      sentence like this seems to have been cargo-culted around much early
      *roff macro package documentation.  It is not clear to me what it is
      supposed to mean; preprocessors are in practice macro
      package-agnostic.  Cross references to preprocessors traditionally
      used with me(7) are already present in the "See also" section, leaving
      this statement with little to achieve.
