Hah--if I had just read all the way to the bottom of the message I'd
cited, I would have found a working link to archives for all 4 (+1)
editions of Plan 9.  Good show on the Plan 9 Foundation.

Thanks, humm--this is good enough information to enable me to further
populate the "History" section of groff_char(7).  In the past week I've
also noted that nearly all of the special character identifiers that
groff predefines and aren't already precedented in AT&T troff provide
mappings for the PostScript Type 1 Symbol font.

There are only a few stragglers, which I asked for help scooping up
earlier this month.[1]  I aim to follow up on that once I fix some build
system problems.
