These questions are at the back of all our minds, I'm sure.

Having gone to the trouble of giving the original UTP a new lease of
life, it would be a real pity if it were not brought up to date. The
updated version could be just the right answer to the long felt need for
a modern book on unix text processing, including groff. But this is
surely going to be harder than just reviving the original.

What does everyone say?
