[Groff] Underline

Hello font folks,

This is not a matter of life & death, just an annoyance.
I'm writing the documentation of a subroutine library where, du to the number of routines,
all names are prefixed for easy grouping/finding.

There is an underline character in every name which does not look good in print. I had this problem even in troff where I tried to lift the underline character by translating it to \(ru.

I've found that \(ul and \(ru are recognized by groff but they give me the same problem as before: they are shorter than other (Courier) characters and this upsets alignments.

I've found that \(ul and \(ru are not coming from a font (not referenced in \xxx octal form), but
generated by groff and/or grops as `.. moveto .. lineto stroke' things.

Could you suggest a remedy to this little anomaly? Courier was supposed to be mono spaced.
