This module exposes the console Unicode API which is used by the functions
in "System.Console.Haskeline".  On POSIX systems, it uses @iconv@ plus the
console\'s locale; on Windows it uses the console's current code page.

Characters or bytes which cannot be encoded/decoded (for example, not belonging
to the output range) will be ignored.
