Ok, I'll submit a separate patch for that.

No, spacemacs is setting x-underline-at-descent-line t because of
bug#30609, I would guess. There's no other good way to deal with
colored underlines as far as I can tell. This isn't a spacemacs issue.
I didn't want to use x-underline-at-descent-line t because I wanted to
use line-spacing in org-mode. Hence my situation and these bugs.

By "this variable" I meant the one I introduced in my patch. Are you
still interested in accepting that?

Just to recap:

1. I will submit a patch to make the two existing underline variables
work buffer local.

2. It would be great if we could figure out a way to address
bug#30609. I believe it would alleviate much of the legibility issues
around underlines when there are multiple colors, which could lead to
x-underline-at-descent-line t not being necessary in spacemacs (and
maybe other peoples configs who have set it for this reason). Do you
think there is a path to this? (feel free to reply to this on

3. I have the previously attached patch which adds a new variable that
draws the underline below the descenders rather than at the bottom of
the overall descent. I believe that this is an improvement to
x-underline-at-descent-line t and that if it existed I would encourage
spacemacs to move to this (if bug#30609 was not addressed). I still
need to make this patch work with buffer local as in [1.], but I want
to be sure that you'd still be ok with this variable. Are you OK with

Got it. Unfortunately, that's not the case.
