May I kindly remind of https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2017-07/msg00366.html,
for which my patch proposal is still pending on the newlib mailing list?
While it's not as urgent anymore for mintty, where I've introduced a 
native width option meanwhile (Charwidth, corresponding to xterm 
-mk_width), it's not the best way to tune character width as it makes it 
inconsistent with wcwidth; also other applications might benefit from 
the option to update wcwidth seamlessly with each Unicode version.
