    groff_ms(7): Make style fixes.
    * Escape hyphens used as minus signs or embedded in macro parameters
      (see SN-STYLE, SN-DOT, and SN-NO-DOT).
    * Render option brackets in roman, not bold, in macro descriptions.
    * Use paired directional double quotes to clarify use-versus-mention
    * Remove spurious \- from the name of the ms macros (they're not the
      "-ms" macros).
    * Fix subject/verb agreement.  Two things do not "denotes" something.
    * Stop captializing a sentence following a colon.
    * Use the Oxford comma.
    * Remove unnecessary commas from dependent clauses.
    * Make minor tweaks to phrasing.
    * Wrap one long line.
    Based on changes suggested by Bjarni Ingli Gislason.
    Fixes bug https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?53547.
