Why would it look weird? Like the author said, the terminal has rendered
it that way for long.  Even on Mac, i find Terminal.app does the same
way.  And it is especially useful when i want to align a mix of ASCII
and CJK characters, which is an issue i know many CJK users had

I made a similar fix on Mac, it also works.  Very good!
