@Tadeus,

The same could be said to you.  Could you please cite some legibility
or typographic material in support for the change?  Either way, it's
technically an opinion.  I prefer the other style (the old way).  I
can't get used to the new change and personally think it's wrong.
However, since underlining has worked the way it has for so long, why
is the default being changed?  The configurable option should be
enough to allow people to choose the way they'd like for it to be
styled.

More choice is good, but changing the way it's worked for so long is a
bad idea in my opinion.
