Well, another way to do it is if the back-end can do cross references,
right?  I.e. if you can identify source and target in the Jade output.

Did anyone get anywhere with a troff back end?  I used cross references
like that in Yuri & Murray's book (SGML on the Web/Beyond HTML) and
it did indeed so happen there was one that said `on this page'....

I had hoped to work on an sqtroff/groff back-end myself, but ended
up swamped with work stuff...
