[Groff] diffmk for groff needs a new name

I'm working with Werner to contribute a diffmk-like command to the groff set,
and he and I agree that it is probably a good idea to give it a new name since
there other things that call themselves  diffmk  that are incompabable in one
why or another.  For example the  diffmk  in found in is for
XML, and the one which is part of AIX has a very different option model.

So the question to the group is, what should a diffmk for the groff package be
called?  Considered so-far:
        gdiffmk         implies GNU, but does not point to roff
        roffdiff        could be confused with diff?
        roffdiffmk      a long name, but more self-documenting
        diffmkroff      the old verb-noun vs. noun-verb debate ...

Other suggestions and discussion please.
