	groff has grn has one of the preprocessors. However there
	is no drawing program in the pkg list for that format
	(gremlin). I'm suggesting to include xgremlin in the pkg
	list. xgremlin is a program like xfig that generates images
	in gremlin format. I have the sources (PD) and also some
	additional filters (my own) to convert from unix plot to
	gremlin and from gnu plot to unix plot. All these in
	conjunction with pbmplus (pbmtoplot) makes a nice environment
	for inclusion of images in groff documents.
