So, you're assuming that just one preliminary pass is sufficient to
resolve the cross references?  That may not be so, and pdfroff is not so
naive; it performs at least two such passes, and then as many more as
may be necessary, until two consecutive passes generate identical
reference dictionaries, (or until it becomes clear that no ultimately
stable layout is achievable).

Sure.  You have the source, to modify as you see fit, (or, are you
asking me to help you with that?)
