[gmx-developers] RFC: need to improve readability of help pages'

I find the new help (and man) page formatting introduced in 5.0
considerably harder to read than the previous one and I would like to
ask for improvements. I know several people I've talked to share this
opinion, so I'm bringing it up here to get some input and suggestions.

I also miss a lot the awesome output/log headers (":)"s and all) which
were not only cool, but also a very efficient way to identify the
starting point of a command on the terminal output (e.g. if a script
was executing a sequence of grompp+mdrun or multiple mdrun commands),
but I guess this is much more of a personal opinion with possibly not
as wide support as the former.

So please, voice your opinions!
