groff is a different case, no?  There's no "roff" since, I don't know,
the PDP-11 or something.  

The project refers to itself as "groff" and the documentation
alternately uses "groff" or "troff" to refer to the GNU and AT&T
implementations, respectively.  GNU has a troff implementation, and
its groff and troff behave differently.
