This looks absolutely fantastic!  I had a quick look through the Worg
documentation, but I could not find any of the beautiful examples you
have posted on the list over the last few months.  It might be a nice
idea to include the those example files and the output pdfs on Worg as a
showcase (this could be a headline in the doc page).

I believe the policy is, binary files go in Worg/images and the source
files can be anywhere in the directory tree where it is contextually
relevant; in this case it could be a org-e-groff-examples subdirectory
in Worg/org-tutorials.

Thanks for the great work; I'm pretty sure I'll be using the letter
export a lot.  :)
