I think using Console codepage for stdio is better. But I am afraid about breaking existing code.
How about treating only UTF-8 and leave legacy environment as-is?

* When GetConsoleCP() returns CP_UTF8, use UTF-8 for stdin. Otherwise, use ANSI.
* When GetConsoleOutputCP() returns CP_UTF8, use UTF-8 for stdout. Otherwise, use ANSI.

This will work nice with PowerShell or cmd with `chcp 65001` in most simple cases.
