Par began in July 1993 as a small program designed to do one narrow
task: reformat a single paragraph that might have a border on either
side. It expanded to handle multiple paragraphs, offer more options,
and take better guesses, at the cost of becoming extremely complex.
Its only redeeming features are that it is extremely useful, portable,
and very stable.
