Not for me its not... I tried Python 1.5.1 on Solaris 
and 1.5.2 under NT and win95. They all give:

>>> import curses
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in ?
    import curses
ImportError: No module named curses

I did think a python curses would be kind of an obvious 
thing to find, but I can't see it. Maybe I'm looking in 
the wrong places?
