I have a (nasty) feeling that what Ira wants
to achieve is beyond TeX in its basic form.
If I understand Ira correctly, then at

>> we could tuck the underscores around the descenders for a  
>> perfect look. 

what is being discussed is an /interruption/ to the
underlining to stop it just short of a descender, and
to resume it just afterwards.  If this is the case
(am I right, Ira), this would require information
on the /positioning/ of the descender, which TeX lacks.
