These man pages wrapping have always pissed me off , because all lines
are indented by a tab and vim does not handle that.
When I do 'gq' on one text block, it only keeps the tab on the first
line... So I always had to manually re-insert the tab for all the next
lines. And the result is that the first line is always shorter than
all the following ones (by one tab).

What am I missing ?
