SVR4 has libform and libmenu. Maybe compatibility with them is still desirable?

perhaps - I'd make it yet-another-configure option since it would change
the size of the ITEM struct (new fields would be on the end of course).

I've been thinking about adding the NCURSES_OPAQUE ifdef to the other
libraries, which would be useful for flushing out applications that use
the struct members directly.  One drawback is that there aren't defined
functions to do _all_ of the operations needed for the values (I used
one in demo_menus, iirc).
