Messing about NCurses and Go

So recently I update by go installation and then installed an ncurses library. I quickly discoverd that the ncurses wrapper is incomplete and tends to not be very goanic.

So far I've added a whole host of missing methods and changed a few others. I also added a Write method which lets ncurses Windows work with the methods in the fmt package. I'll have to see if the original author is interested in my changes as I do seem to be taking the wrapper in a slightly different direction.

All together it has been an interesting way of playing with the go language.

I'd be interested to see what your updated NCurses wrapper looks like. If the original author doesn't take your changes, please upload it to a public repo somewhere.
