The file foo.pod below processed with

	pod2man foo.pod | man -l -

produces only half the heading line in bold

	"one" and "two"
        ^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^
        |     |
        bold   \ not bold

the roff which comes out is

	.ie n .Sh """one""\fP and \f(CW""two"""

and I guess the \fP is turning off the bold set in .Sh.

I wonder if the mangling regexps in switchquotes() of should be
non-greedy, per below.  Unless that would hurt nested fontification even
worse or something ...
