[This was on tech-userlevel@]

I know I'm late, but the patch on tech-userlevel was kinda misleading
as it used CURSES_VERSION in version.c and I didn't realize it was
actually the netbsd version from Committed code calls it
NETBSD_VERSION, which made me pay attention.

Why would we ever want to report this completely random and unrelated

There were years when curses in the tree was unchanged.  In the mean
time we have churned through dozens of netbsd versions.
