And I will be providing a test build of coreutils (for stty) that
exposes IUTF8 to the command line (to be promoted to current once the
cygwin release is).  dash and readline do NOT need to be rebuilt to take
advantage of it (since it is the terminal, not the shell, that is
handling input), although I need to rebuild readline soon because of
some upstream patches that need to be folded in.
