I started work in this direction with raw_display but never quite finished.

I'd be happy to use code from curtsies to finish my raw_display hack and/or
add a curtsies_display module.

I was also thinking that curtsies looked perfect for a the terminal widget
to use instead of the current unpleasant list of lists of tuples.

be cool (as would understanding urwid well enough to know that this
functionality doesn't belong in urwid). Thoughts?

it in the the #bpython irc channel, where it was suggested to me this might
make sense as an Urwid frontend. Is this within the purvue of Urwid? (the
repl use case seems fairly different from apps using Urwid I'm used besides
bpython) If so, is this still too special-purpose to think about
integrating into Urwid as a frontend?
