I'm looking into fixing sbuf.9 which currently has somewhat unreadable:

.Ft typedef\ int ( sbuf_drain_func ) ( void\ *arg, const\ char\ *data, 
int\ len ) ;

...into somewhat nicer:

.Ft typedef int
.Fo (sbuf_drain_func)
.Fa "void *arg"
.Fa "const char *data"
.Fa "int len"

...but that gives me a:

mandoc: share/man/man9/sbuf.9:69:5: WARNING: parenthesis in function 
name: (sbuf_drain_func)

Looking at the code, parenthesis are only allowed in the following form:

.Ft (*func_ptr)

...while here we don't have a "*" -- it's the way it's typedef'ed in the 
source, and I want to follow it, so I wonder if that check/warning is 
really useful.
