I have not used it as a coder.  I have seen it in action in the curses
interface to wicd, the simple network manager.  It was pretty
disappointing actually, both standing on its own (multiple widgets
broken, some in dangerously subtle ways) and compared to the gtk
interface.  This may be a consequence of the hair-pulling.

I would definitely look for an alternative first.
