This patch series enables direct man page creation with asciidoctor, but in addition tries to
minimize the difference with asciidoc+docbook.

I fixed as many issues as I could, and now the doc-diff looks very sensible. I could not find any
major issues, however, some minor issues still remain.

On the other hand the asciidoc method has issues as well, so it's not clear which method is superior
at this point; both have advantages and disadvantages.

At the very least the man pages with pure asciidoctor should be quite usable now.

This series builds on top of my cleanups [1]. It's probably not worth the effort to split the two.
