par isn't very much code, and it produces pleasing results. I've
already hacked on it a bit to fix a problem with the UTF-8 patch.
There's still one probelm I know of which I haven't had time to
investigate, but with the modified patch it mostly works. I likely
will come back to that sometime this summer. I'd prefer that we fix
the problem with par rather than dumping it.
