Of course, I got this right after AI sent my mail to Gaius Mulley and Werner
Lemberg.  I asked them to decide about bothering the list, so I'll leave it up
to them, such a thing as this is really, really going to raise the noise level
here (for the short term) so I want to be certain I won't be irritating a bunch
of folks.  I'm too new on this list to be willing to launch off something this
big without a bit of trepidation.

You ever see the Sam's book on Unix system typesetting?  I think I saw a pdf of
it on the web a year or two ago, (I have TWO printed copies of it!), and you
ought to consider looking at it, it's easily the most readable things on all
aspects of roff programming available.  You need to have several of the things
from Bell Labs available while you read macros, but it's a really, really good
start on things.
