Maybe we should just have a consistent convention throughout the 
documentation on whether to use one space after a full-stop or two. 
Right now in some places we use one space, in some others we use two, 
even in the same file. This is slightly distracting when reading. Having 
a convention would at least result in uniformity, even if it won't end 
the debate on which is better. And FWIW, our man pages are always 
rendered with one space, even if the source file has two.
