	I still like the idea of implementing a check for unknown
	commands in Groff instead.  A warning from Groff may be used to
	trigger a lintian warning, like how it's already done (check
	lintian/checks/manpages, Tag: manpage-has-errors-from-man.)

	I haven't written anything in Perl for the three years or so,
	but of course could give it a try.
