Follow-up Comment #2, bug #55334 (project groff):

Relax, I cannot commit anything anyway, since I don't have write access to the
Groff tree.  And I'm all for finding a better way of doing this if it exists.

Your proposal to read just part of the input is not necessarily a better
solution, IMO: the telltale part of the input which enables encoding detection
could be after the part you decide to read, and input can be very long, thus
reading all of it until EOF might not be practical, and will delay the
production of output.  This could work with a small number of encodings, such
as UTF-16 and EBCDIC.
