@* is awful.  It cuts the current line _short_ unconditionally which
means that we may get abysmally bad breaks when the paragraph content
changes.  It makes more sense to use @/ which merely permits linebreaks.

Makes for inconsistent formatting of lines.  Making an example block or
a one-column "table" seems to make for more consistent results.
