The message in question motivating the "[UPGRADE]" tag on this ticket is Werner Lemberg's message of 15 November 2013.

Perhaps the third entry in the list of the most important improvements to GNU troff: shrinkable space.  I guess that this has to be implemented while adding support for TeX-like paragraph formatting (bug 40716).

(This upgrade request is an addendum to Werner Lemberg's list of the highest priority major upgrades groff needs.  The paragraph above is the upgrade description in his own words.  This item was an addendum to his original list; the thread in which it arose on the groff email list is archived at http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/groff/2013-11/msg00079.html.)
