    groff_tmac(5): Fix style nits.
    * man/ (Macro packages/Auxiliary packages) <papersize>:
      - Remove extraneous language.
      - Add space to usage example.
      - Say "output device" instead of "output driver"; the distinction is
        solidly on point here, since a given output driver executable can
        implement multiple output devices (as grotty and grohtml do), which
        can in turn have distinct `papersize` declarations in their DESCs.
