    groff_tmac(5): Remove .tm prefix from example
    .tm request sends anything to stderr. I found it confusing to be used
    in these examples because:
     1. it further complicates things by introducing extra entity;
     2. it doesn't even work, since stderr won't be formatted with \f[I].
    This solution sacrifices line break before the arguments list. I found
    that single dot (.) line does not work without leading spaces in
    surrounding lines; and introducing .br request would be like swapping
    one extra complexity for another. After all, the implied-but-missing
    line break is not as noticable as the missing \f* formatting.
