Hello comrades,

Here’s some RFC for people using double‐width characters in terminals in
their daily life.

Which applications do you use that handle double-width as you expect them?

        Do these applications use the double-width for the layout?

        Any Chinese or Japanese user?

If double-width characters would be drawn to fit the standard cell size of the
terminal (drawing them in half the font size) would this suffice your need?

        This question implies that it is possible to simply increase the
        average fontsize so the complex glyphs look good. Would this suffice
        your need?

Naming the applications would be important so I can test st to their
