Reimplementing groff is not EASY, it is HARD. Sheesh.

description="""
Write a replacement for groff that is BSD licensed.  Earlier versions of BSD
UNIX had one, so maybe it could be revived from an earlier version of BSD UNIX,
and updated to support newer groff-like features, at least enough to support our
current mandoc macros.

Note: In March, 2009, there was some discussion regarding a
[groff/-mandoc replacement](http://mdocml.bsd.lv/) on the
[tech-userlevel](http://mail-index.NetBSD.org/tech-userlevel/2009/03/01/msg001766.html)
mailing list.
