He means the console on GNU/Linux.  I haven't tested there.

The problem I see is on xterm, where the current behavior is very
strange.  For example, with your earlier example:

(with-temp-file "~/atemp" (insert #x202d ?a ?\n))

Visit the file with emacs -nw -Q on an xterm and press C-f a few times.
You'll see that the "a" is displayed one glyph to the right of where it
should be.  Apprently, the console draws #x202d as two spaces, and this
leads to inconsistent display.

The same problem occurs on gnome-terminal.
