[New-bugs-announce] [issue29170] Curses Module should check for is_keypad and not window flags

New submission from Roy Marples:
checking whether WINDOW has _flags... no
The ncurses library can be built with an opaque window structure.
As such, it's not always possible to query it's flags.
Luckily there is the is_keypad function which works regardless of how ncurses was built.
If this test is changed, then it will help support NetBSD curses as well.
