Sorry I'm in holidays so I missed this great paper by Robert Marks.

I would be happy to make a dedicated part of the groff examples
repository for full papers.  I already added last year a presentation by
Ingo Schwarze to EuroBSDCon 2018.

I have some spare time so if anyone wants to send me sources to their
own files either in full or in snippets I would be happy to incorporate

If there are some copyright worries we can discuss on how to make the
code available to the public.
