Sounds good!  Push whenever you're ready.

Right.  I'll pull that first in my queue ahead of man(7)/pdf issues and
the recently awakened old slumbering two-headed beast of tbl and line

I have doubts about my time availability to get this into the kind of
shape I'd like to see for 1.23.  I'm also wondering it wouldn't be
better in the long run if we got the long-desired increased parity
between grops and gropdf regarding foundries and such, and a shared
"download" file format between these two output drivers, before
increasing the visibility of these and our long-term support burden for
the tool generating them.
