Lists on the man pages don't seem to be able to have a single entry,
because sowing requires you to start lists with "+" and end them with "-",
requiring at least two entries.

This leads to ugly-looking indentation for man pages for functions with a
single input or output parameter, e.g.

I think that this can be remedied with a small change to sowing (doctext),
to interpret a lone '-' as opening a list (and then closing it after one

(Posting this here since I'm not sure how closely the
bitbucket.org/petsc/pkg-sowing repository is monitored)
