...though this brings up a good point, that the documentation should
probably be amended to explicitly state that \0, \|, and \^ are
unbreakable.  I had to figure this out through experimentation.

A possible patch to do this is attached.  Perhaps only the groff.texi
part of the patch should be applied; isn't meant to be a
comprehensive reference, and this level of detail may add unnecessary
