I put together a patch to grotty to allow the device control command
\X'sgr:0' to disable SGR output, which would allow this to be controlled
on a system-wide basis by man.local and mdoc.local. Unfortunately,
putting \X'sgr:0'\c in man.local appears to cause an extra couple of
line breaks just after the first page header, which is quite noticeable;
I haven't been able to find a piece of troff that will just embed 'x X
sgr:0' into the ditroff output without any surrounding motions.
