Actually the comment's accurate.  It says what version was examined,

        # Windows 10 1903
        # Version 0.2.1715.0

and lists several issues which led to omitting various features of
the "xterm-256color" terminal description to give a terminal description
which would work properly with the Windows Terminal.

If someone uses that version of Windows Terminal with TERM=xterm-256color,
I'll be seeing bug reports and negative comments about ncurses.

(If there's a newer released version of Windows Terminal, I can update).
