I've heard of se before, however was never able to build it. Such a shame
that a small project like this (5K loc) uses auto* hell configure and make
for no reason.

If anybody wants to go and fix the build let me know of your fork or patch
as I want to try it, out of curiosity. It's unlikely that it will replace
nextvi for me but still, I am open to explore new ideas.

Kind Regards,
