I don't think it would make sense to silently disable the extension if `encoding._wide` is set; IMO that would cause user confusion. If a user sees that the log lines are not lining up properly, that is easy to understand, diagnose and fix (change your Terminal font). If the extension just silently doesn't work, that is much harder to fix.

Yeah, that's going to be difficult. I started down this rabbit hole when
I was looking for a way to display diagonal dotted lines. I'm not sure
if there is an answer.
