Have you not actually tried it? I think it would fully meet your request,
unless I’m misinterpreting you. You do have to use the ACS_* macros (or
equivalent), not the Unicode characters. I think that’s the right thing.

Only 16 of the ACS_* codes are handled currently (others would be more
complex), but they include all of the box-drawing characters.
