function unichar_iszerowidth(c: String): Boolean {
    // Gjs wrapper for g_unichar_iszerowidth()

Determines if a given character typically takes zero width when rendered. The return value is true for all non-spacing and enclosing marks (e.g., combining accents), format characters, zero-width space, but not U+00AD SOFT HYPHEN.

A typical use of this function is with one of GLib.unichar_iswide or GLib.unichar_iswide_cjk to determine the number of cells a string occupies when displayed on a grid display (terminals). However, note that not all terminals support zero-width rendering of zero-width marks.
