Hi Paul, Branden,

I don't remember if we covered this bit in the discussions we had
a few months ago.  I'm seeing a couple of warnings from mandoc(1)
in tzfile(5):

$ make lint-man-mandoc V=1
LINT (mandoc)   tmp/lint/man5/tzfile.5.lint-man.mandoc.touch
! (mandoc -man -Tlint  man5/tzfile.5 2>&1 \
   | grep -v 'STYLE: lower case character in document title:' \
   | grep -v 'UNSUPP: ignoring macro in table:' \
   | grep -v 'WARNING: cannot parse date, using it verbatim: TH (date)' \
   | grep -v 'WARNING: empty block: UR' \
   ||:; \
) \
| grep '.' >&2
mandoc: man5/tzfile.5:15:19: WARNING: undefined escape, printing literally: \\
mandoc: man5/tzfile.5:15:10: WARNING: undefined escape, printing literally: \\
make: *** [lib/ tmp/lint/man5/tzfile.5.lint-man.mandoc.touch] 
Error 1

The source is:

$ head man5/tzfile.5 -n20

Is this a limitation in mandoc(1)?  Should we change the source code?
