I currently have a report using the ms macro package that can be processed
with -Tascci or -Tps. 
I'm trying to remove all the page breaks from the ascii version so that the
report just shows up as one long page.

Any hints on how to do this?

I see that the man package has an 'rC' register that controls this behavior,
but a brief look at the man macros informed me that it would take more than
a brief look at the man macros to figure out how it worked. 

I currently detect if nroff is running, and if so, set the page length to a
very long value, stripping off the newlines after the report runs.  I was
just hoping for a more elegant solution.
