Hi. I'm Japanese and non-ascii charactor user. (cp932)

We have to use "IME" to input non-ascii charactor in Windows.
When "> chcp 65001" in cmd.exe, we cannot use IME on cmd.exe.

So setting codepage to 65001 make output universal but make input ascii-only.

I hope PyQtShell <http://code.google.com/p/pyqtshell/> become good
IDLE alternative.
