Even if such a GUI were available, who would use it?  As Deri
says, LyX is available for LaTeX, and LaTeX probably does a
better job at typesetting than [gt]roff.  The whole point of
troff is that it is a *markup* language for those who prefer to
work that way.  I, and I'd guess other groff users, use groff
instead of TeX/LaTeX because we like the markup language better
than we like that of TeX or LaTeX.
