After taking a closer look, not even _cursesmodule.c 2.1 is going to
help me.  The copyright in the /usr/include/curses.h on this box is:

 * Copyright (c) 1980 Regents of the University of California.
 * All rights reserved.  The Berkeley software License Agreement
 * specifies the terms and conditions for redistribution.
 *      @(#)curses.h    5.1 (Berkeley) 6/7/85

There is no support for either attributes or colors!  Taking the
current source and cutting out everything unsupported will at least
keep the python-curses API intact.  That's probably my best route.
