Although we call it the "ascii" driver, the strings that it's being
presented with are UTF-8. 

However, unfortunately its tabulation mechanism assumes that all characters
are one byte wide.    This means that rows which contain
non-ascii strings end up with their column boundaries misaligned.

It should tabulate the data based on characters, not bytes.
