This option is important to Asian users because many fonts of Asian language treat and render ambiguous characters as double-width.

Just like iTerm's Treat ambiguous-width characters as double-width and vim's ambiwidth, problems caused by different treatment of ambiguous characters' width between different fonts may be resolved if such option is provided.
