Nice idea, but not by default. An easy way to switch back and forth, and to be sure the original mode is restored on process exit would be a win.

Most windows users want a real GUI, not curses, but compatibility with VT escape codes for cross-platform semi-GUI stuff could be useful... and could enable the stdlib curses to be included in Python for windows also? I'm not sure why it isn't, and "ANSI" a.k.a. VT escape codes have been available in Windows for a long time... but until Python 3.6.0 (thanks again Steve, and others), Windows console handling in Python has been extremely limited.

Also note that UniCurses and Pygcurse exist and provide similar capabilities.
