Terminal.getline *might* work in my lib, but if there's combining 
codepoints I'm not sure. You can try it though and let me know if 
you are already using the lib.

There's also ReadConsole in core.sys.windows.windows that isn't a 
bad experience (just Windows only). It works with `wstring` just 
like WriteConsole and is the native function with unicode 
support. The operating system also manages some editing for the 
user, cursor placement, etc. so is more likely to work better 
with edge cases than my library's custom implementation of all
