If just discovered that 1.5_BETA is shipping the 5 years old groff
version 1.10 -- development on groff hasn't stagnated, version 1.16
is available for quite some time already.
It includes nice features like a html driver, which lets you format
troff documents (including of course manpages) into html documents,
and bug fixes.
I know it's probably too late to integrate into 1.5 but maybe it
will be considered for next time.  In the meantime, a package would
be nice.
