True. However the 'new' heading is longer than the rest,
so it doesn't fit in the margin (which is carefully defined
to be just big enough by the funny \w'....'u argument to
.TP). So we can either make the margin bigger (which looks
a bit silly) or give up on the idea of having all the
headings fit in the same line as the first paragraph
of the text, at which point we might as well make the margin
be 4 characters to line up with the text in the 'result:'
section below.

Unless anybody wants to narg about manpage formatting
I'm going to commit the following patch.
