`Plain groff'?  What do you mean?  Using those hypertext macros
unconditionally prevents man pages from being portable...

A possible solution is to have something like this in the header of a
particular man page:

  .ie \n(.g \{\
  .  mso www.tmac
  .  de UN
  .    URL \\$1 \\$1
  .el \{\
  .  de UN
  .    <do something>

groff's .URL macro is much more powerful than .UN -- .UR/.UE looks
strange to me anyway.
