Hi Branden,

very brief feedback:  If all you care about is new groff, old groff,
mandoc and Heirloom, then what your committed does indeed work,
but so would this much simpler version, so i assumed you were
aiming higher:

  .\" Define fallback for groff 1.23's MR macro if the system lacks it.
  .if !d MR \{\
  .  de MR

I noticed that you put "mandoc" in a comment on a line that mandoc
does not need (and that, incidentally, no other formatter you are
targetting needs either).

Besides, i concluded from the comment "non-groff *roff" that you
were targetting other formatters besides groff, mandoc and
Heirloom, and i wondered what those might be.
Now it appears you targeted none beyond those three.

What a relief!  =:c)
