I would certainly consider using it in future
projects. However, with my current project I had already
done a thick binding with a thin C layer underneath. The
idea behind that was so that I could still use another
implementation of curses (like HP's) without seeing changes
in the constants etc. (like attribute bit definitions).
But having said that, perhaps that was already addressed.
More research (for me) on that is definitely in order.
