Have you a little example?  A small database, groff input, and the
command line to show it up?  For those of us who don't use refer much it
means we have something to follow through the source code with.

\w?  Or is

    .de foo
    %A \*[foo Blow2]\[duplicate]

valid?  You could define your own foo that does nothing to make it clear
that's the intent.
