Maintainer needed for cursesmodule

The curses module included in Python 1.5 isn't actively maintained by
anyone at the moment; no changes have been made to it for over a year,
and little serious development has been done on it since 1995.  It
seems likely that the module will be unbundled from Python 1.6, and
made available for separate download.  A fancier module for ncurses
has been written, so cursesmodule.c's compatibility with BSD curses is
no longer very interesting, except to people on really old systems.

So, if anyone would like to take over maintenance of the module,
please send me an e-mail.  

Many thanks to Lance Ellinghouse for originally writing cursesmodule,
back in 1994.
