Have you determined which lines are problematic?

I looked at `man waffle_context` and `man
waffle_is_extension_in_string` in a skinny terminal of about 50 columns.
The only problems I see are long urls (which we can't do anything about)
and the function prototypes. The function prototypes look *awful* in
a skinny terminal.

So... what's wrong with the XML for prototypes? I'm no XML or Docbook or
manpage expert. So I'm lost here too.
