This may have been part of DWB after 1991; and there
are indications that it was ported to Plan9, though
I can't track it down. Menawhile, the following
extract from an old GNU newsletter (1991) may be of

James Clark has written groff---GNU troff and related programs.
Possible new projects include: the grap preprocessor
(borrowing code from pic); the pm page-makeup postprocessor
and associated -mpm macro package.
More work is needed on the documentation, which now assumes
that the user already has the Unix versions of the
documentation. [1991]

One thing which is indicated in the above is that there
was a special post-processor for use with -mpm.
