Phys Rev A adopted troff for their in-house typesetting soon after the
advent of eqn. It was a bold move; the journal sports ferocious
equations. Really long ones could extend to full-page width in the
middle of 2-column text. I doubt any current macro package can do
that. (Perhaps Phys Rev couldn't either. They may have set galleys,
not pages.)
