I don't need to keep ncurses if I can release it to a successor I
trust. And I don't want there to be a split for reasons I've gone

But I *will not* allow any derivative of my code to remain under
Thomas Dickey's usurping authority, and that is final and not
negotiable. He's still under threat of being sued or jailed for
copyright violation under the Berne Convention if he tries, and I'm
not kidding about that.

I am certain Zeyd will back me 100% on this.
