That's not what I am talking about. This is about _drawing_ the cursor
at the right position. I am talking about positioning the cursor
_internally_. That is, the x/y cursor position. Your patch just moves
the visual cursor according to your wide-characters. See the two
examples below about internal cursor positions.

Ugh? I gave two examples, one with and one without MODE_AUTOWRAP. So
it doesn't matter whether you support it or not, in both cases it will

If you don't implement it properly, you will soon notice that stuff
like vim will fail. They rely on these features.

I recommend keeping it simple. But it's not me to judge. If you refuse
to implement it properly, I have no reason to review that. You need to
convince krh to apply it.
