Does slang do anything special for magic cookie terminals?

Does it rely on underlying curses?  termlib?  termcap or terminfo
definitions?  If it relies at some level on termcap or terminfo
definitions, I'm sure it would be equally sabotaged by a bad description
of a terminal.  Descriptions that rely on magic cookie attributes are
almost by definition bad.

I have neither slang nor a Wyse 50 with me to test...
