Yes, mom does this.  The macro for it is

    line for line text of verbatim text

By default, mom sets the text in QUOTE in italic, or, if you're
using PRINTSTYLE TYPEWRITE, underlined.  To get what you want (i.e.
a roman, non-proportional font), do

    .QUOTE_FAMILY C \" Assuming you want courier
    .QUOTE_FONT   R \" Assuming you want roman

before the first invocation of QUOTE.

See the document section "5.4.8 Quotes" for further explanation.
