I think, that an author can prevent any such algorithm to succeed,
especially orphans or enlarged space after periods. It's
therefore better, to give us the tools and we're doing the job.

My TODO list would look like that:
- arrays: It's inconsistent in groff to have loops but no arrays.
- math: In pic calculating asin() is atan(x/sqrt(1-x^2)). Nice math, but
  will the time spend be honored?
- Square root in eqn. (Especially when deploying font height.)
- Underlining across line breaks.

More challenging:
- 3D objects.

When I find the time to develop for groff, the first I do is, removing
the auto ("we think for you") shrink feature of pic.
