Currently,there is no a simple way in curses bindings to get the code
associated with a key press of non ascii keystroke (f.e. รง) in terminals
configured with UTF-8 encoding. 

getch returns the code for a wide character byte a byte.
But ncurses library has a proper function to do it: get_wch.

Patch against Python v2.6.2 to provide this missing get_wch method
in the ncurses bindings.

Include a test example and a patch to the documentation as well.

More info and a partial solution without patching python curses module
