    Indeed 0x0e 0x71 0x0f generates the same output as U+2501.

    I can't say when the last time was that I saw SISO in use, though.
    At least UTF-8 programs just print U+2501, so it should
    be fine to exclude SISO handling there.
    With

    echo -en "\e%@"; setfont r -u /usr/share/kbd/unimaps/cp437.uni;
    LC_CTYPE=C mc

    it would also output no SISO and use 0xc4 for U+2501.
