I've started to look how to implement Knuth-Plass algorithm, this will be done after release 1.22.4.

Implement TeX's paragraph formatting or something similar -- I consider groff's line-oriented paragraph formatting as its weakest point. See heirloom troff for an example how this could be implemented.

(This upgrade request comes from Werner Lemberg's list of the highest priority major upgrades groff needs, as posted to the groff email list on 15 Nov 2013. The paragraph above is the upgrade description in his own words.)
