I'll get on it immediately.  When I saw yesterday that \[.sty] had
been implemented, I immediately rebuilt my installation from the
sources, but then realised that the above were also required for me
to test out its (their) usefulness.

This is all very good news, since I'm hoping it will provide what I
think groff needed: a way for macro writers to determine for
themselves how they want the business of families, fonts and font
styles to be handled, but without there being disruptive changes to
the way pure, "unmacro-ed" groff operates.
