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.
