    groff_man(7): Clarify .SY pargraphing behavior.
    * Document fact that .SY works like a .PP macro (causing a break and
      vertical space) except when re-used "inside" a .SY/.YS region (where
      it causes only a break).
    * Remove unnecessary word "amount" from description of .YS.
    * Remove unnecessary .PP macro before .SY in page source.
    Thanks to Bjarni Ingi Gislason for pointing out this issue.
