I still didn't give a try to dmenu. In any case, i think you are wrong
in saying that ncurses is a fairly big library,
unless you are comparing it with the termlib library (a low-level access
to the termcap database):


If so, don't lump ncurses with the Gtk and Qt toolkits altogether :)

Btw, simple-netaid-cdk is going ahead, and i have it working on my
