IIRC, it's because nobody really maintains it, and those that care
about it, use a different one (either ncurses module, or a newer cursesmodule).
So from what i understand, you get complaints, but no real advantage
to having it there.
I'm just trying to summarize, not fall on either side (some people get
touchy about issues like this).
