Support non-newline glossary term separator(s)

The current way of expressing multiple term variations is:

   .. glossary::

      term 1
      term 2
         Definition of both terms.

This can be suboptimal when there are several terms; in such a case there will be several lines (all terms) highlighted. A nicer, more readable alternative way to express could be:

   .. glossary::

      term 1 | term 2
         Definition of both terms.

A different term separator could be chosen of course; for example a comma or (forward) slash would be fine as well. Or allow all three, as they are all commonly used in computing to list alternative tokens.
