Python and (n)curses

I need to develop a cross-platform text-mode application. I would like
to do it in Python and I would like to use a mature text-mode library
for the UI stuff.

The obvious choice, I thought, was ncurses. But as far as I can tell,
it is not available for Python on Windows?

Is there a workaround? Or are there alternative libraries that might
be used instead of (n)curses? I know I can use (n)curses on *nix and
console on Windows etc., but that is of course suboptimal.
