NEWT/Snack (aka python-newt in Debian) is a C extension interfacing with In source package (e.g. from Debian or better src.rpm for
newt from PLD) you will find only these 2 short "demos". To see
python-newt in something bigger, look for src.rpm for RedHat's Anaconda
installer (I am sure RH 7.3 has it, don't know if newer versions of RH
also use text-mode installation routine).

And that's all I know of python-newt examples.
