I know there are SOME old systems that don't, but it certainly makes
sense to make it the default.  Chances are those old systems won't be
upgraded to a current gcal anyway. :-)

Though I don't quite understand what the option is meant to do.  I
would have thought the needed change would be to use things like
mbswidth() (from gnulib) rather than strlen() to figure out how much
space a string would take.  And that I thought would be backward
compatible in a non-UTF-8 locale.  But maybe I don't understand this.

Great! :-)  (Let me know if I can be of any help.)
