I think it will not be very useful, as PicoLisp uses the UTF-8 representation
directly. We would need only a single function from that lib, the one returning
the print-width of a given char after converting it to wchar.

Perhaps the easiest solution for the Chinese problem would be a simple heuristic
range check, something like (and (> C SomeLimit) (prin "^H"))
