We are not reimplementing curses for DOS, no... If there is a version of
curses for DOS, Anygui will work with that. (I don't know anything about
curses in DOS, actually ;)

And if there is no curses, you can use textgui, which only needs the
print statement. Slightly corny, but mighty cool, IMO. (And at least it
works ;)

Here is an actual screenshot (I never thought I'd say that about contents
of a plain-text usenet posting ;) ):

This was copied straight from the screen -- and this program works well
with Tk, wxPython, Qt, GTK, Java Swing, BeOS/Bethon, win32all,
and curses too.
