ok.  I'm mainly interested (at this point) in whether ncurses is maintaining
the color state properly.  I (and a couple of other people) made a series of
changes since 1.9.9e to make it follow the SVr4 model better, and I'm looking
for potential problems (works fine everywhere I'm testing, but there's no
formal testing).

a set of menus would be nice, I suppose, though that can result in a lot
of clutter.  tin-unoff does it with a menu (but it's too long - I'd like to
restructure it, but the easy way ties it too closely to SVr4 curses to keep
it really portable).

Well, in the meantime, I'll point people at my patch (unless yours is somewhere

I just dialed into this list a couple of days ago. Where's the current code
set available for download?
