Follow-up Comment #1, bug #61422 (project groff):

I would add that '.DS $indent' does not appear to be an established usage that
is worth recognizing for the sake of rendering old AT&T troff documents with
less effort.

According to my grep of the Version 7 Unix Volume 2 manual sources (excluding
the C Reference Manual which has been suppressed by Prentice-Hall), such a
construction was _never_ used.

$ pwd
$ grep -r 'DS[ \t][.0-9]' . || echo nothing

Spot checking of my claim can be done via the following URL, and various sites
have an archive of the full V7 sources.
