Putty can do a UTF8 locale, with that set, and with a UTF8 locale on the
remote system, you should not need the poor man's line drawing.  I've
used finch inside screen that way.

On OSX I sometimes lack the fonts for some the symbols, such as ◯, but
the line drawing works just fine, again assuming I have a UTF8 locale (I
tend to use en_US.UTF-8 because I'm basically monolinguistic)
