Curses Now Sucks Less

I wrote a long time ago about the lack of liberal input handling in curses. Well, I added it. It was even easier than I expected.

There was one part that was worse than I expected: not every program uses the input-parsing library from curses, so not all of them will benefit from this change. Anything that parses its own input (which isn't really useful nowadays, as far as I can see, although admittedly non-ncurses versions of curses do suck more) will have to be patched to handle the additional keybindings. The good news is that the patches will all be about as short as this one.
