Actually, I don't have a problem with groffs typesetting either.
As I pointed out in my comments to Peter, the fine points of 
typesetting are beyond me, but obviously more sophisticated users do
see a need for improvement.
But my contribution was triggered by the discussion on the groff mission
statement and on pro and cons of the Knuth/Plass algorithm and its
alleged complexity.
So I was motivated to share my experience in implementing mathematical 
optimization solutions.
