Please publish your script!  The implementation in `grog' would be very easy.  
But `groff.cpp'
needs C++, which is still quite hard.

It would be useful as well, if the `tmac' name is included as well: man, mdoc, 
me, mm, me, mom, etc.
For it is often hard to discover with `grog' and `groffer' which `tmac' should 
be there, e.g. the
difference of `man' and `ms'.
