The documentation of the curses module is not clear on the fact that
getch is blocking by default:

I suggest the following description instead of the current one:
"Get a character. Note that the integer returned does not have to be in
ASCII range: function keys, keypad keys and so on return numbers higher
than 256. By default, getch() is blocking and wait indefinitely for a
key press. In nodelay() mode, -1 is returned if there is no input."
