[Groff] URL hyperlinks in PDF from grops and ps2pdf?

I use groff to produce technical white papers.  I run gv and
monitor a PostScript file so every time I update the file while
writing in vi (by pressing a function key that contains the groff
command as a vi macro).

When I need to print the file, I send it from gv to a LaserJet

But I also often need to convert the PostScript document file to
PDF format so I can load it onto a website for visitors to
download.  I normally use ps2pdf to make the conversion.

There are times when it would be nice if I could include a live
hyperlink to a web URL inside the PDF (and have it look like a
hyperlink in the PostScript file too).

I don't want to produce an HTML file from groff, which leaves
me with the question:

Is there an easy way to put an html hyperlink inside of a
groff-generated PostScript file?
