A few years ago on the groff email list, there was widespread support for a new groff request to underline, strike through, and perhaps do other variants of these (e.g., double underlines).

See threads starting at http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/groff/2014-07/msg00028.html and http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/groff/2014-07/msg00038.html

Werner suggested (http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/groff/2014-09/msg00109.html) that this feature request be added to the bug tracker, but as far as I can tell it never has been, so here it is.
