Hi, Ingo and Branden!

As far as I know, there's currently no tool that warns on "foo. bar" in filled test. Not `mandoc -Tlint`, and not `groff -ww`, and not `groff -rCHECKSTYLE=999`. I know that CHECKSTYLE is not designed in a way that could catch this easily, but maybe -ww or -Tlint could. Do you think you could add some semantic newlines warnings so that writers could realize by themselves that their text could be improved?

The tool could have a secondary warning, not so important, for "foo, bar".

Also, as far as I know, neither of -ww nor -Tlint have something equivalent to -Wno-switch (or -Wno-error=switch), which could be nice to silence (or make non-fatal) some warnings on purpose. Do you think that could be implemented in groff(1) or mandoc(1)?
