Follow-up Comment #5, bug #57618 (project groff):

Other things being equal, I lean toward getting rid of the PostScript column
or, more precisely, moving it to the grops(1) page.  (I'd have gropdf(1) just
direct the reader to grops(1) for the glyph list with PostScript names.  Now's
the time to tell me if/how PDF glyph names are incompatible with, or extend,
PostScript names.)

The main thing stopping me at this point is the DRY principle.  The groff
glyph list should probably maintained external to both pages and inlined into
each, with columns appropriate to the page.

But that would mean that groff_char.7.man and grops.1.man need to become .in
files, and bleah.

A bit of tedium.  But not insuperable.
