    Bug 797791 - [Windows] list of command line options after 'gnucash.exe --help'?
    This commit makes gnucash-cli a console application on Windows which
    means it's output will be redirected to the connected console.
    This works both in cmd.exe and in powershell.
    gnucash itself remains a Windows GUI application and hence won't output
    to console. To capture its output one needs to start it from cmd.exe
    (not powershell!) as follows
    'path-to-gnucash.exe' >'file-for-stdout' 2>'file-for-stderr'
    'file-for-stdout' and 'file-for-stderr' are the names file two arbitrary
    files the user has write access to. They don't have to exist beforehand.
    Note 'file-for-stderr' can be set to '&1' (without the single quotes)
    to redirect everything on stderr to wherever stdout goes.
