anybody remember why ncurses was needed, or did it just precede the
introduction of ANSI color escape codes?

I don't see any other code that currently relies on ncurses. But since
you were hesitant to remove the dependancy, I broke down and finally
learned how ncurses and terminfo works. So, there is better patch at

Good work, that's what I call a proper solution. I've added the patch to CVS now and your name to the THANKS file.

And after finally studying it, ncurses probably is the way to go,
since it will work on odd terminals that use strange color codes.
