The curses library is missing two important calls:

newterm() -- required to work with multiple terminals,
or to find out if it is possible to work with this terminal

delscreen() -- required to free up the memory after
endwin() -- current implementations have memory leaks
for programs that need to start and stop (those that
handle terminal resizes, for instance)

Would anyone care to submit a patch to add the missing calls?
