I just some days ago posted a patch to use Unicode on the Windows
clipoard (look for the subject "Unicode support for the MS Windows
clipboard").  So if you can build your own Emacs you could try that.

On Windows, realistically only using Unicode will help to
cut-and-paste text in an encoding that is not the same as the default
system 8-bit encoding.  The current Emacs can't do that properly
regardless how you configure it.
