    I'll go over it soon, but I think I will keep silent today and look what
    other feedback comes in, so I can consolidate.

    Ahhh... I actually used Jon Postel's nroff template. I guess it would
    have been clever to post the source, too ;) Anyhow, I am not sure if I
    review RFC2223 - I'll do so before the update.
    Ok, for those that might not have changed the file, here is the original
    nroff source:

    OK - I just (now) would like to put emphasis on the fact that the new
    stamp should be used. But I'll re-word.

    Agree. But this still prohibits DBCS, as byte values below 0x20 can
    occur, especially CRLF. This probably confuses collectors not expecting
    this. We could solve this with byte-counting, but I am not sure if we go
    overboard. After all, it should be a very slight addition to
