You do know that "nroff -man FILE" works fine, do you?  ;-)
I think man does more:  it deals with the locale and runs the page through some filters.

(Note that I'm not against "man -F".  It's less typing.)
Oh, it might gone in unnoticed:  I removed the -F again, man now simply searches for a file as the last resort.
