Recently the PKG_OPTIONS for tin were rearranged to allow choosing
curses, ncurses, or ncursesw. None of these, however, is the same as
the behavior prior to the rearrangement; the choice apparently has
broad user-visible implications, and consequently the users complained.


Recompile tin with the default PKG_OPTIONS. The reports I got included
changes in color display and arrow key behavior, and maybe other stuff.


This adds an option to select the old behavior. It might be best to
make it the default as well, so as to create the least surprise.
