Today I checked in a new version of the curses module that will only
work with ncurses and/or SYSV curses.  I've tried compiling it on
Linux with ncurses 5.0, and on Solaris; there are also #ifdef's to
make it work with some version of SGI's curses.

I'd appreciate it if people could try the module with the curses
implementations on other platforms: Tru64, AIX, *BSDs (though they use
ncurses, maybe they're some versions behind), etc.  Please let me know
of your results through e-mail.

And if you have code that used the old curses module, and breaks with
the new module, please let me know; the goal is to have 100%

Also, here's a list of ncurses functions that aren't yet supported;
should I make adding them a priority.  (Most of them seem to be pretty
marginal, except for the mouse-related functions which I want to add
