Actually, in view of the struggle I've had with an "improved" curses,
I'm rather leery of "improving" it further.  Also, after GPLv3 was let
into the tree, I no longer trust NetBSD source to be suitable for
open-source work; I would feel compelled to check the license on each
file.  Each of these pushes me towards using -4's, not -current's, as
the replacement if I wanted to replace -5's curses.

I may need to - even with my own locale, though, it seems there's still
a bug somewhere.  The actual application displays non-ASCII characters
fine, but my test program still misbehaves the same way as before!
