Note that Unicode console support already assumes they're equivalent. For stdin, we read UTF-16LE via ReadConsoleW and encode bytes to the UTF-8 BufferedReader via WideCharToMultiByte with CP_UTF8 (65001). For stdout/stderr, we decode bytes from the UTF-8 BufferedWriter via MultiByteToWideChar with CP_UTF8 and write UTF-16LE via WriteConsoleW.
