I'm trying to provide an alternative to the "-finput-charset=utf-8" GCC
option setting for MSVC.

This option affects all files read by GCC for that particular
invocation, and it would be nice if it could do the same thing for MSVC,
which unfortunately involves prepending a UTF-8 BOM to all files the
compiler will read.
