That's an opinion which I share.  When I wrote pdfmark.tmac, I tried --
successfully, I hope -- to keep it primary macro package agnostic.  I
mostly use it with ms, but there should be no reason why it cannot be
used, equally well, with mm, me, mom, or any other primary document
formatting macro package.

This, of course, is one of the foundational principles of good software
engineering -- the principle of reusable code.
