[R] R help files -> S-Plus; par('mgp')

Thanks to Brian Ripley I have been using R utilities for
some time for converting S-Plus UNIX nroff help files 
to .Rd to .html files.  .Rd files seem to be the most
natural format for help files and this format is probably easier
to maintain than nroff, so I would like to start
using .Rd files as my master documentation format
if anyone has a utility for going from .Rd to nroff.
I guess I could use .Rd -> html but the html would not
fully meet all the needs for S-Plus 6 help files.
Other approaches and ideas are most welcome.

P.S.  I didn't get any reaction to my proposal to have
x- and y-axis specific par('mgp') parameters when
par(las=1).  I hope that R-core will consider that.
