It's only available in Jruby and Rubinius as far as I know, and then
only as Beta.

Do we have the functions needed already declared in windows-pr? There's
Windows::Console plus the MSVCRT functions. I'm willing to throw Windows
2000 under a bus on this, too, as I'm aware that Windows XP added
several console functions that might be desired, or even necessary.
