You note in the hint that you haven't worked out cat page generation.
I thought i'd mention something i discovered in the hope of saving you
time when you do.

Man doesn't save cat pages unless unless the output is a terminal and
that terminal is 80 columns wide. IIRC, that can be changed with a
trivial patch.
