It lets you insert pdf images into documents. :)


  - allows scaling by percentage
  - provides sensible float handling
  - allows adjustments to vertical placement for better optical
  - can be captioned and labelled
  - provides the option to put a frame around the image

It would be exceptionally nice if groff natively handled images in
formats other than ps and pdf, but I don't think that's going to
happen any time soon.  For now, it's .ps, or .pdf, or nothing.  Not
a huge issue with 'convert'.
