Regardless what we finally will implement, it seems that I have to add
subdirectory searching to groff, similar to the kpathsea library in
the TeX's web2c implementation.  With other words, a path element
which is ended with two slashes (`//' or `\\') will be searched
recursively.  It should not be too difficult, and I ask all TeX users
what else I shall take care of.  Please make suggestions.
