I submitted pdfpic.tmac to the list as a proposed temporary solution
to the problem of groff not having a pdf equivalent to .psbb.  IIRC,
the proposal met with resistance because it relied on external
programs (from poppler-utils) and required running groff in unsafe
mode.  Furthermore, it hasn't been thoroughly tested.

We need more discussion before it's included as part of groff.
