re Martin's question, I can offer the indirect wisdom of Michael Kaplan
in this blog post:

where he mentions that the easiest way to output unicode text in the
Windows console, is:

int main(void) {
    _setmode(_fileno(stdout), _O_U16TEXT);
    wprintf(L"\x043a\x043e\x0448\x043a\x0430 \x65e5\x672c\x56fd\n");
    return 0;

_setmode being the special call needed.

I haven't tested with any _O_U8TEXT (if such a thing exists), I don't do
Windows anymore, therefore I can't provide a patch.

It also seems that Python —when stdin/stdout/stderr is under control of
a Windows console— doesn't use plain *printf functions. The example code
I offered in one of the other issues (dumb stdout doing plain .write as
UTF-8) runs and displays fine.
