Follow-up Comment #1, bug #56015 (project groff):

I'm a +1 on this.

Except I'd go ahead and fall back to the asterisk if none of bullet, period
centered, and middle dot are available:

.if !c\[bu] \{\
. ie c\[pc] \
. tr \[bu]\[pc]
. el \
. ie c\[md] \
. tr \[bu]\[md]
. el \
. tr \[bu]*

I would not count on modern "tty" devices to be capable of arbitrary
overstriking, since they're made of glass.

We can of course develop a new "papertty" device, but if there wasn't much
demand for it in 1991 I'm guessing there will be even less now.
