Awesome! This thread already had me thinking, "There should be a
reST to TROFF/GROFF path--if there's not I guess I'll write one." I,
too, had resolved recently to start maintaining all my project
documentation in reST. Not that I find building/editing manpages
directly in vi to be that hard, but it's still laborious and
time-consuming. I'll be happy to contribute fixes to this for any
bugs I find. Thanks for the rcommendation!
