Hmm, SunOS has -c option which does "Crown margin" formatting.  I don't
   think this conflict a good thing.  Shouldn't we use another letter?
   This paragraph is formatted by "fmt -c" on SunOS, by the way. :-)

Quoting from fmt(1) of SunOS:

     -c   Crown margin mode.  Preserve  the  indentation  of  the
          first  two lines within a paragraph, and align the left
          margin of each subsequent line with that of the  second
          line.  This is useful for tagged paragraphs.
