if there is CYGWIN=codepage:ansi option than you can do something like

set CYGWIN=%CYGWIN% codepage:ansi

and no matter what codepage: was set in your original %CYGWIN% we will
turn back to default.

well, using alternative console font is a good idea, but it won't help
if we have

echo blah-blah > "some cyrillic file name written in oem (866) codepage"

command  in  our  script.  But  i  think  both  approaches can coexist
peacefully.
