    [docs]: Fix Savannah #68216.
    [docs]: Re-re-christen 'ESCAPE_AMPERSAND' ('\&').  Now call it a
    (non-transparent) "dummy character".  Also rechristen
    'ESCAPE_RIGHT_PARENTHESIS', ('\)') as the "transparent dummy character";
    it has no impact on sentence-ending detection.

    the report and to the groff mailing list for the vigorous discussion.  I
    don't expect my solution to please everyone.
