Yes.  This is quite a dilemma and I don't know how I shall handle
this.  groff provides a lot of nice features which aren't available
with old troff versions (e.g. colours), and the man pages which come
with groff use them.

Since groff is intended as a replacement for troff, it can do the
opposite, namely processing and displaying documents written for old
troff versions (using switch -C to enter compatibility mode).

So the question is: Why shall someone read the groff man pages
without groff?
