I don't agree with that logic.  We currently have flexible docs that are
available in multiple formats.  Changing that to be a single (archaic)
format would be a step backwards.  I'd only want to replace yodl with
something better that was also capable of outputting multiple formats.
In the meantime, the immediate problem with the groff format has been
(re-)fixed, so that's taken care of.  When updating the docs we just
need to be sure to use a patched version of yodl, such as the one on or the one shipped with Debian (or even patched manually).
