TRST mode is enabled by default (could not be disabled at the moment:)
and work with PDCurses (tested).

The true is that TRST mode work for "Simple" tables which generally mean
you have enought screen width for that particular table (see also
docs/README.TRST). If TRST code found out that the table "is not Simple"
than no difference compared to previous versions appears.

They could be possibly ignored by screen readers at all (a guess).
Did you hear any difference when things are centered or aligned left
or right?
