If _that_ matters, how about starting by fixing the use of the 25th
line before worrying about details of octet->glyph mapping? (Real
VT-100s, like peecee consoles, have 25 lines, but the 25th is strictly
a status line, in sharp contrast to the way wsemul_vt100 has 25 text
lines and no status line at all.)
For that matter, there's 132-column mode, too.
If you don't want to do that, then I have to wonder why "exactly how a
real vt does it" matters for arcane details of font handling but not
for basic functionality like screen real estate use.
