Writing TUI's is a PITA, let alone a new TUI-library, because there are
so many kinds of terminals around to support.
It certainly would require chewing a lot of manuals on this topic to
get something which "works almost everywhere".

But I would never discourage anybody of at least making the effort.

You might want to check out termbox[1] as an example for a really lean
minimal implementation, which, however, unfortunately relies on waf and
of course doesn't offer Ncurse's portability.
