The man page for opl(4) states that:

"The opl driver provides support for the Yamaha OPL2 (YM3812) and OPL3 (YMF262) chips.  The chips are FM synthesizers and are capable of producing a wide range of (mostly awful) sounds."

This ("mostly awful") does not look professional, and isn't true.  It should be removed.

Also, I'm not sure about the business at the end with "BUGS: The OPL3 chip is operated in OPL2 mode despite being more capable.".  There is clearly code to detect OPL3 chips, handle the additional voices, and use different patches.
