I've looked at the internals and noticed it uses the codepage APIs
from Windows, so UTF-8 won't work right now without some changes. I
would not be adverse toward this becoming a supported feature though,
with it converting and calling the correct Unicode APIs behind the
scenes. I'd be happy to supply a patch for this if you are interested
in including it.
