Resolving this might also eliminate the need to say `\%` again after `\:` escape sequences.

$ printf '.ll 8n\n\\%%antidisestablishmen\\%%tarianism\n' | nroff -Wbreak | cat -s
antidisestablishmen‐
tarian‐
ism


Hyphenation should stay off *until the end of the word* except where infixed `\%` escape sequences occur.
