Thank you!

Ah, how typical!

I called it mg at first, because of the association between mg
(milligram) and its tiny size, but I found out that Heirloom troff
includes a set of groff compatibility macros called g.tmac. I though mu
was a good alternative, because of the association between the Greek
letter mu and the SI prefix micro-.

Regardless, I think you've quite clearly laid claim to the u*.tmac
namespace. I've renamed my package to mk.
