Well, the .devicem macro will be exactly the same as \Y.  To create
similar code with grops you have to use the `ps: def ...' grops
command to define a PS macro which is then executed with `ps: exec' --
I'm sure you know that :-)

BTW, does SGI troff directly emit PostScript?  Otherwise all lines
with `\!' are put into the intermediate output file -- this also needs
an extension to the PS output device, starting and ending rough PS
data with `%' and `.', respectively.
