I myself would love to have a python2.0 windows curses module, but nobody
with the know-how seems to think that it is important.  

What you could do, though, is create a dummy module called curses.  You
say that you don't mind if it doesn't function.  Just create dummy
functions corresponding to the functions that your program calls.
