Hi Deri,

My departure's an hour later than I thought so I have a few more

Oh, I see, we were deadlocked.  I wanted the groff-man-pages.pdf
invalidity problem fixed first, and you wanted my changes that keep it
valid reverted first.

Okay, I'll yield.  I'll do the reverts of the 3 remaining commits of
mine to which you objected, then push everything I've got pending (just
got your pocket full of uncontroversial assent), then you can make the
further changes you have in mind.

I'll be pushing about 21 commits very soon, since I'm about to leave,
groff-commit may be a more reliable notification channel.

In the meantime I'll try not to forget that the Euro glyphs will be
missing from groff-man-pages.pdf...
