    [pic]: Recognize `.PY` as synonym of `.PF`.

    * src/preproc/pic/main.cpp:
    * src/preproc/pic/pic.h: Add new Boolean variable,
      `want_alternate_flyback` to record `.PY` usage.

    * src/preproc/pic/main.cpp (top_input::get, top_input::peek): Recognize
      it.  Update diagnostic messages to mention it.

      (main): Define `PY` troff macro as empty if not defined.

    * src/preproc/pic/troff.cpp (troff_output::finish_picture): Don't
      advance the vertical position if `want_alternate_flyback`.  Write out
      the `PY` macro call if it was on the input.

    * src/preproc/pic/pic.1.man: Document it.

    * tmac/pic.tmac (PY): Define the same as `PF`.

    * NEWS: Add item.

    Fixes <https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?62901>.

    Also drop old-style Emacs file-local variable settings.

I noticed that too, and mentioned it over in http://savannah.nongnu.org/support/?110692

This is a gratuitous comment to see if the Savannah bug tracker -> email gateway is back up; it seems to have been non-operational since sometime on 12 August.

See bug #62900.  This is the pic end of the pic/mm `PF` collision problem.
