I'm happy to defer whatever Peter and Bertrand can agree upon, but I
note that the page already says:

"mom comes with her own very complete documentation in HTML format.  A
separate PDF manual, Producing PDFs with groff and mom, covers full mom
or PDF usage."

Moreover, full-path file specifications to those documents are offered
immediately thereafter.

I think the message that the man page is incomplete is pretty strongly

Admittedly, "what the man page _is_", however, isn't.

Does that mean I can push my other pending changes after all?  :P :P :P
