Depending upon your needs you might be able to  write quite a bit of the 
application logic inside gfd file triggers.  The core trigger logic is shared 
between all gnue apps so this might make migration of this logic from inside 
the form to appserver easier if you decided to switch to appserver in the

I honestly can't say.  We've taken several stabs at the curses driver, each 
time getting a little closer to complete.  I believe most the basic 
functionality was working a while back.  Things like dropdowns were not 
working correctly though.  However we don't have a dedicated curses UI driver 
maintainer.  So it's mainly a matter of someone finding enough time devote to 
making it happen.  

I *think* our current issue was with regard to the fact that our curses 
library doesn't provide us a way to create overlaying windows that save the 
data beneath them.  This makes things like the dropdown screw up the 
underlying screen.  I think.

So, if anyone feels like they'd love to do some curses programming we're 
always looking for volunteers :)
