I do have cross reference macros that I use for my books.  As
with TeX and LaTeX, this requires two passes through groff.
The first accumulates the references and the second actually does
the type setting.  That sounds like a pain, but I handle it all
with a make file, so I don't really notice it when I'm making
trial or final runs.

I'd be happy to make them available (it's really only a couple of
macros) to anyone who's interested.  If there's enough interest,
I'll post them here.

Peter, if you'd like to include them in mom or use them as a
starting point, you're more than welcome--just let me know.
