Yep, but it does to some lengths to deal with working around various  
LaTeX constructs.

Oh, i see what you mean. Unless I'm mistaken, the underscore is taken  
from the ascii range even in unicode, so there should be no problem:


Hmmm, I see that unicode has a number of underscore-like characters  
such as "non-spacing underscore" and "double underscore". So I suppose  
there's scope for extending the "underscore.sty"-like functionality to  
select these instead of the stock standard ascii _ .
