  | Heirloom roff does support \*[xx] and 3 letter names.

Sorry - I did not mean to give out incorrect info .. I haven't used it
and just assumed it would implement std troff, not gnuisms (in troff
the sequence \*[xx] is the contents of the string register [ followed
by the three chars "xx]" ...)

My point was that we should avoid using groffisms to allow the largest
possible choice of *roff version to be used (I could probably dig up
a DWB version somewhere!)
