Bug#366912: Re-write man page

Package: paps
Version: 0.6.4-1
Severity: wishlist

Hash: SHA1

The man page is, honestly, in rather poor shape; it reads as a
half-completed rough draft.

       --column cl
              Number of columns output. Default is 1.

This confused me at first with the other meaning of column, as in an
80-column terminal. Not quite sure how to fix this one.

       --fontscale fs
              Font scaling. Default is 12.

Does this mean point size? If so, this option is named wrong.

       --family f
              Pango ft2 font family. Default is sans.

What is "ft2" ?

       --rtl  Do rtl layout.

After scratching my head for a while, 'rtl' must mean right-to-left.
Please expand the acronym in the description! Second, what does this
mean? Is all the text forced right-to-left? How does this interact with
normal Unicode BiDi?

       --paper ps
              Choose  paper  size.  Known  paper  sizes are legal, letter, a4.
              Default is A4.

Put an "and" before hte last item in a list. Known paper sizes are
legal, letter, and a4. 

Someone else has already reported all the margins which have no unit
