Update of bug #55107 (project groff):

                  Status:                    None => Need Info              


Follow-up Comment #2:

I have a historical question.

Does anyone know why `psbb` wasn't made a preprocessor in the first place?  I
have an imperfect command of the issues, but it seems like a better fit.  A
preprocessor can run whatever external commands it needs, any images to be
included have to exist by the time troff(1) itself runs or .psbb wouldn't have
anything to work on anyway, and pushing this work to a preprocessor avoids the
need for .sy requests and unsafe mode.
