Well, this is embarrassing, I forgot to check you program
before starting on ul(1). However, I just ran

        MAN_KEEP_FORMATTING=y man man | ./iode

and it is not able to display it properly, which is the
only thing I have implemented in ul(1) so far. But I'll
see if there are parts that can be reused.
