Lots of bug fixes.

This includes the heuristics to avoid overquoting the contents of C<>
sequences.  They may still need some tuning; please try them out and give
me feedback if you think they do the wrong thing.

This release should also hopefully finally kill the problem of quotes in
=item text being doubled with some versions of nroff, and with C<> text in
headers messing up the bold font of the rest of the header (at least under
nroff; it may still be broken with troff).

Finally, the new COPYRIGHT AND LICENSE section is included in all modules
and is mentioned in the pod2man manual page.

Changes from previous release:

2001-07-10  Russ Allbery  <rra@stanford.edu>

	* VERSION: podlators 1.10 released.

	* scripts/pod2man.PL: Added a description of the COPYRIGHT AND
	LICENSE section, add a mention of a mailing list in SEE ALSO, and
	mention that large logs are better kept separate from HISTORY in
	the description of a standard manual page.  Added a COPYRIGHT AND
	LICENSE section for pod2man.
	* scripts/pod2text.PL: Added a COPYRIGHT AND LICENSE section to
	the documentation.

	* lib/Pod/Man.pm: Changed LICENSE to COPYRIGHT AND LICENSE.
	* lib/Pod/Text.pm: Likewise.

	* lib/Pod/Text/Color.pm: Added a COPYRIGHT AND LICENSE section to
	the documentation.
	* lib/Pod/Text/Overstrike.pm: Likewise.
	* lib/Pod/Text/Termcap.pm: Likewise.

	* lib/Pod/Text.pm (seq_c): Add heuristics to decide whether or not
	to quote the argument of C<>.

	* lib/Pod/Man.pm (switchquotes): Remove font changes for nroff to
	work around a bug in the Solaris 2.6 version of nroff's handling
	of \fP in headings.  No longer add an extra level of quoting for
	=item; it isn't necessary.

	* lib/Pod/Man.pm (sequence): Call quote_literal to handle C<>.
	(quote_literal): New function, handling the decision of whether or
	not to put quotes around the argument of C<>.

	* lib/Pod/Man.pm: Added a LICENSE section to the documentation.
	* lib/Pod/Text.pm: Likewise.

	* lib/Pod/Man.pm (guesswork): Remove the logic turning PI into a
	pretty pi character; it produces too many false positives.

	* lib/Pod/Man.pm: Removed the definition .Ip from the preamble.
	Removed .bd B 3 from the preamble; this isn't part of the accent
	mark definitions but instead changes the way bolding is done,
	confusing some other translators.
	(cmd_item): Emit .IP instead of .Ip.
