Actually, this is a bit too simple, but you get the idea. We need to
align the terminal codepage with the actual Cygwin charset, along the
lines of what your setup_locale is doing standalone yet. Except in case
of ASCII, where we default to UTF-8 internally. The important part here
is that we do this once, and that we don't have unnecessary code
