Except that it wasn't BSD-specific, just a version of the main package that
had a BSD patch applied. It was still Arch: any. And, just so that folks
can play along at home, it was version 1.17.2-16, with the following taken
from the .changes file:

 groff (1.17.2-16) experimental; urgency=low
   * Experimental upload for the benefit of the NetBSD porters.

[ rest elided ]

So, perhaps I should rephrase the question: is there a problem (other than
lack of time) with doing an upload of 4.2.0-1 to the experimental archive,
whatever the backing name for it is?
