Revisiting Windows support

[Please do not mail me a copy of your followup]

Now that the console supports the standard ANSI escape sequences (see [1]),
is there any chance that ncurses can be properly supported on Windows?
(By "properly", I mean as a native Win32 build, not using a POSIX
compatibility shim like cygwin or mingw.)

Applications like mine probably substitute pdcurses instead of ncurses
in order to get a Windows build, but it would be nice to use a single
library instead of the strict intersection between them (or worse,
conditionally compiled support, which I always find to be a
maintenance PITA).

Sorry if this has already been asked and answered a billion times.  I
scanned the FAQ for "Windows" and didn't see anything that directly
answered my question.
