My system has scandalously little physical memory for a machine in 2014,
but I would still love to have a document-wide formatting algorithm
available in groff.  As long as groff provided the choice to optimize
for either minimizing resource usage or maximizing quality of output,
I could run in the former mode during development and then have the
final document prepared in the latter mode overnight.

In other words, I want this feature because I covet higher quality output,
not because I have all this memory lying around I don't know what else
to do with.
