Thanks Sadrul, probably be using some of it. My idea is very similar to yours,
but I am hoping my library will be used more for accounting applications
than anything else.

The idea is to create some libraries built on top of nCurses that allow one
to program nice looking business applications using a standard set and
portable functions.

You may be interested in libgnt, an event-based ncurses toolkit. It has
built-in widgets like buttons, boxes, textboxes, comboboxes, menus etc.
You can take a look at the Finch instant messenger (http://pidgin.im),
which uses libgnt. There's also a python binding for it at
http://code.google.com/p/python-gnt/ (git repo at
http://repo.or.cz/w/python-gnt.git). There are some example applications
in the 'example/' subdirectory.

There's also a bunch of screenshots at http://pidgin.im/~sadrul/ss/
(libgnt creates the html dumps)

The library makes heavy use of glib/gobjects, though, which might be too
high a requirement for your project.
