Portable.NET has a curses binding already, though I've not tried to use
this with mono, however it shouldn't be too difficult to use the same
approach as used in, say, the Perl module Term::Cap and just read the
appropriate terminal description and output the appropriate strings for
the different capabilities.  If I get bored I'll have a look at this.
