I was thinking about heirloom's *roff, too. But, as I mentioned, it contains
many pieces each covered by a different license (BSD, GPL, CALDERA, LUCENT,
CDDL, MPL, LPPL). If that's not an issue, I'd love to see it replace groff.
As far as 4.4BSD's *roff is concerned, well, I didn't actually expect it to
support PostScript, so I wasn't disappointed when I saw it doesn't.

Best regards.
