Binary package hint: xserver-xephyr

There seems to be no manual page for Xephyr (though there is a usage note enabled with --help or any other unrecognised option).

You would extra points if you would find someone to write the manual page :)
A lot of them are missing (look for "binary-without-manpage" errors):

Going to give this one a shot. I've done one or two man pages but this one looks like it could be rather complex. Well see how it goes.

Here is my feeble attempt at this man page. Not sure if I have the xserver-xephyr.1 in the right place in the branch so I am attaching a diff of the manpage.
