Asummed you would have contributed a patch on, you could have provided the
necessary additions in html there, so I could proper add them to the
respective manpage.

Additionally, the people actually writing patches are most of the time
smart enough that they can alter a simple manpage without knowing the
format by heart, but by looking at the manpage itself (assumed that they
do not know it already anyway). Too bad you don't.
