Currently Darcs needs regex-compat, which I presume is a backwards
compatibility module before transitioning to the current API.  Should we
look at switching to the current API?

Secondly, AFAIK we currently either use libncurses directly, or not at
all.  I see two Haskell third-party abstractions in cabal list: are
either of these viable and advisable to adopt?
