I'm probably not using a good search string, but search for
python get term size without curses
returned nothing on first 2 pages of hits in google groups..

Anyway, this solution doesn't work in 2.1 - termios module doesn't
have this attribute, (TERMIOS is deprecated and doesn't have it either).

What's tigetstr?
