This is very ugly change. Changing console codepage effect console font. Also you probably notice that curl doesn't restore original font.
@bitcrazed This is NOT right way to show unicode. You should use wide string APIs.

Thanks for fixing @mattn
So, an innocent question from someone not usually on Windows: how annoying is this bug for a typical user? Would you (the plural you, anyone!) say this is a reason enough to do a patch release or can we live with it for six weeks?
My feel for this is that this is fundamentally a cosmetic issue (i.e. I don't think it breaks functionality/behavior, right?), though to what degree is a good question for @mattn.
IMO, This doesn't break functionality but curl harms to console. For example, if we use curl in Vim plugin, console is broken. I strongly wish getting this fix immediately.
