[Groff] Using C with glib instead of C++ for groff

        what's the topic here?  32 bit Integers?  Or C++ use of
namespaces?  Or I18N?

If the problem is ``groff uses static instead of namespace'' why not
change the 2.0 code to use namespaces?  The time of C++ compilers that
don't know how to handle namespaces is over (really!).

If the problem is ``we need an 32 bit Integer'' (I really wonder where
such a constraint derives from) why not solve it in the configure
script.  If it is a question of ``efficient Integer Type with at least
32 bit'' then there should be a small piece of software that implements
just the inner loop and can be timed depending on all available integer
types with the necessary bit width.

I cannot see any point for using ``glib'' to solve any of the above

Sincerely, Robert S.
