Subject: attention: users of the curses screen package

I would like to hear from anyone who has written or is writing
a program that uses certain obscure, but documented features of
the "curses" screen package.  Chances are than an upcoming version
will not support some of these obscure features, and I want to
know if anyone will be impacted.  The features are:

variables: Def_term, My_term, ttytype

functions: gettmode, setterm, longname, mvcur, savetty, resetty

the functions scroll or scrollok, or any notion of scrolling.

Any terminal mode other than crmode(); noecho(); noraw(); nonl();
