Well there is no Win32 code in console so it is not native.  You need
Cygwin.  a few years back I compiled a version in Cygwin and made it
available to our customers.  You do not need the Cygwin environment.
You only need the dll.  So I created a zip file that contained
console.exe and cygwin?.dll.  It worked fine on the cmd.com prompt.

It is console from 7.2.7 though.
