    groff_man*(7): Distinguish `RS`'s inset amount.
    ...from indentation.  While both are horizontal distances, we are
    otherwise at pains to distinguish indentation from insets (left margin
    manipulation), and using "indentation" to name `RS`'s argument confounds
    this distinction.
    Prompted by discussion with Alex Colomar.
