This doesn't seem necessary. A general purpose font modified to
display the chess board in plain text in accordance with Michael
Everson's proposal would be expected to use the same metrics as the
box drawing glyphs for all of the VS-produced glyphs. A general
purpose font *not* so modified would not be expected to display the
chessboard in a perfect square, anyway. (Yet the display would still
be legible.)

Best regards,
