I already have a solution in Python 3 (see https://github.com/Drekin/win-unicode-console, https://pypi.python.org/pypi/win_unicode_console), I was just considering adding support for Python 2 as well. I think I have an working example in Python 2 using ctypes.
Is this going to get released in 3.5, I hope? Python 3 is pretty limited without some solution for Unicode on the console... probably the biggest deficiency I have found in Python 3, since its introduction. It has great Unicode support for files and processing, which convinced me to switch from Perl, and I like so much else about it, that I can hardly code in Perl any more (I still support a few Perl programs, but have ported most of them to Python).
I wondered if all your recent questions about Py 2 were as a result of porting the above to Py 2... I only have one program left that I was forced to write in Py 2 because of library dependencies, and I think that library is finally being ported to Py 3, whew! So while I laud your efforts, and no doubt they will benefit some folks for a few years yet, I hope never to use your Py 2 port myself!
