Surely it can be trimmed down while still illustrating the essential concepts.

* About a third of it is one multisentence quote, which ends up
spanning eight output lines but gets hyphenated only in one spot.

* It switches languages twice.  It's good to inform users this works,
but a statement to that effect in the text would serve that purpose;
I'm not sure illustrating it in the example serves any further

* Using the default (Times) typeface and not requiring preconv would
eliminate the need for the comment line indicating required
command-line options.
