Actually, it was recently *added* to Ncurses...just not in a stable 
version yet - it's in the batch of upstream patches. I believe it's my 
fault - I sent in a ticket report with a list of program updates, 
including "tabs", which was in the patched version (as I use CLFS 
myself, and CLFS uses Ncurses' upstream patches) but not in the release 
version...
