No, it shouldn't have anything to do with the choice of ncurses / slang /

There is no command-line option for TRST - it is currently always "on",
but only kicks in when a table is "Simple" enough.

Me too.

I don't have Hiroyuki's (or any) Win32 binary, but I assume it works
just like in the generic code for Unix.

All TRST does is (1) add spaces in lines, and (2) shift lines left or
right.  Do you hear different numbers of spaces differently?  If not,
the change should be completely unnoticeable to you.  In other words,
neither helpful nor harmful to blind users.
