Re: terminfo vs termcap
Most of the curses functions work on a single screen (terminal) at one time.
The set_term() function changes the current screen and all subsequent calls
operate on the current screen.

has_colors() will operate on the current screen.

Indeed. The whole design is not thread safe. In a multi-threaded program,
you can only have a single curses handling thread.
