Thanks.  In case you need more help please contact us (this is,
Michail and me).

1. We suspect that it has been non-functional for a longer time
   already -- have you ever had a report from a person who actively
   uses it?  Maybe we are wrong...

2. The `particular troff version' isn't specified: Is it AT&T troff?
   Is it Sun troff?  Which version?

3. If you insist on retaining the old troff support it should be
   rather straightforward to do so.  Please tell Michail because he
   has written those changes.
