Single-width display option

Thomas Wolff
I have implemented a single-width display option for mintty
With this feature enabled, CJK characters are rendered single-width.

While this may appear alien for terminal users who are used to the
established dual-width paradigm, some people may in fact prefer it, as
advocated and visually motivated in

In order to support locale-consistent width handling with this option,
I'm proposing another locale modifier "@cjksingle" which triggers this
behaviour for the wcwidth/wcswidth API. I've prepared a patch which I'll
send to the newlib list.
