Excellent. I'm not sure man format would be terribly useful for the
musl documentation I'm working on now, but it's good to know for
future reference, especially if we do want to provide a few man pages
that could be installed for musl.

For the big doc, HTML and PDF are probably the more interesting output
formats. The big thing I don't see how to do easily is produce a nice
table of contents or index.
