Well, the new functions are documented in the mh-format man page, and I
even put in the bits about repl's duplicate supression for formataddr
since that was news to me!

Maybe I'll add some comments to fmt_compile.c and fmt_scan.c.  It's not
_terrible_ (other than that code being horribly non-reentrant, but I
guess that didn't matter too much back then).  Also the memory management
is pretty much non-existent as well (I guess for single-shot commands,
it again wasn't a big deal).  But once I got into the middle of it
you could follow it reasonably well.  And I will note that Oliver Kiddle,
Josh Bressers, Peter Maydell, and Jeffrey Honig have all been inside of
that code, so if I get hit by a truck there is still hope for nmh! :-)
