What I meant is that is displays what a user of the linux consoles
expects for underlining, which is a different colour.  Ie, it supports
the standard vt100 escape sequence, but the output is not physically
an underline.

When using TERM=linux in gnome-terminal you do get real underlines.

One issue then is whether emacs should ignore faux underlining
support.  Console users will have certain expectations on what
underlining, bold, el al mean that are obviously different than
what users of terminal emulators may expect.  I'd certainly
expect emacs to do what all of the other apps do and ignore that
the console emulates underlining via a colour change.

The other issue is how emacs determines that a given term's
underlining support is via real underlines or some alternative
representation and, if the latter, whether colouring text might
collide with the application of the underline attribute.
