I pulled the latest git code and ran my regression test suite (for lack
of a better phrase) to test the groff exporter. There were no unsolvable
issues, but you might want to know that I found:

   - No changes were needed to org-export.el or org-elements.el  All the
     tests were run with the code from git. These two files did not
     cause any problems during the test. Therefore, those can be left as
     they are.

   - The change with the largest imapct on my code had to do with 
     the BEGIN_GROFF/END_GROFF pairs in which now invokes the special 
     block function and process the enclosed text through the plain-text 
     function. Originally these were passed through without the
     invocation of the plain text function. 

     I had to remove all the text pre-processing being that it was causing
     problems in the execution of GROFF macros. I do not think that
     doing this will hurt (much) because of the GROFF  markup syntax.
     For instance:
     TeX/LaTeX looks like this:
     while GROFF looks like this. 
        .DS C

    French quotations are not supported now because of this change, quotes are
    significant in GROFF for many things and I cannot translate those
    because GROFF will fail with a syntax error. 

    - There were some other issues found, but those were my doing :). These
      were resolved and pushed into the repository.
