[groff] RFC: replace doc/ or "evergreen" it

doc/ is a nice example of how to do some fairly sophisticated
stuff with groff, putting groff color extensions and the www macro
package on top of the classical ms macro package to make an attractive
hypertext document.

...but it is a maintenance burden to keep up.  It appears to be the
source document for the groff home page at some time in the past.

Can I get some votes on one of the following options?

1. Retire it (delete it from the build and repo).

2. Modify it to make it more obviously an example, removing everything
that seems outdated or untimely.

3. Bloody-mindedly update it for the 1.22.4 release.

4. Something else?
