Color curses and Python 2?

I'm playing with the Debian Linux (x86) Python v.2 beta and
I can't seem to get color curses working.
A minimal working sample would be nice. The examples in
the curses HOWTO at python.org are simply not working (wrt
the color functions). The only time I've gotten color
curses funtions working under Python is when I compiled my
own copy of the interpreter with a replacement/patched version
of the curses module.
I thought I'd heard that color ncurses support would be included
in 1.6. Was it? I still haven't seen a 1.6.x package
available for Debian. Is it something they put in 1.6 and
changed for the 2.x betas? Why is this so difficult. Is it
so much to want ncurses/color support? Do I really have to
go back to Perl for this?
