an immediate thing to do is to declare cp65001 as an encoding:

     #'uu'                 : 'uu_codec',

This is not enough unfortunately, because the win32 API function
WriteFile() returns the number of characters written, not the number of
(utf8) bytes:

>>> print("\u0124\u0102" + 'abc')
[44420 refs]

Additionally, there is a bug in the ReadFile, which returns an empty
string (and no error) when a non-ascii character is entered, which is
the behavior of an EOF condition...

Maybe the solution is to use the win32 console API directly...
