Interesting!

I was able to tweak David-Sarah's code to work with Python 3.x, mostly doing things that 2to3 would probably do: changing  unicode() to str(), dropping u from u'...', etc.

I skipped the unmangling of command-line arguments, because it produced an error I didn't understand, about needing a buffer protocol.  But I'll attach David-Sarah's code + tweaks + a test case showing output of the Cyrillic alphabet to a console with code page 437 (at least, on my Win7-64 box, that is what it is).

Nice work, David-Sarah.  I'm quite sure this is not in a form usable inside Python 3, but it shows exactly what could be done inside Python 3 to make things work... and gives us a workaround if Python 3 is not fixed.
