Well, I'm interested.  wxWindows is nice.  Perhaps a port on top of CDK
would be easier?  www.vexus.ca/cdk?

However, unless my memory is really bad, wxWindows used to support Curses.
I'm pretty sure I remember a package for that.  I didn't ever see any apps
for it, nor did I try to build any myself (no time).  The main wxWindows
site lists Curses as one of the ports -- is it just lying?  The URL it
gives as the source is at
