Line 'import curses, ascii' should be replaced with 'import curses'

The ascii module is used all around the file... if you don't import it,
how would you use that functionality?

Sorry, I didn't not distinguish between curses module ascii and built-in
function ascii.

"import curses.ascii as ascii" works. Is this a good fix?

Or is it possible/better to use relative import?

Ah, I now understand what you mean.

The best, IMO, to avoid the confusion in the import and in the usage, is
to do:

>>> import curses.ascii as curses_ascii

Do you care to send a patch?  Thank you!

>>> import curses.ascii as curses_ascii

If you like curses_ascii you would probably like curses.ascii :) so here
is the patch. I tested it with module built-in testing facility (if
__name__ == '__main__') but didn't run other tests.

Patch with "patch -i curses-textpad-ascii.patch
