PS: just a personal question, not for debate: why SLang is used instead
of ncurses?

S-Lang is smaller, especially if we consider that only the part
responsible for screen output is used, not the interpreter.  This allowed
to include the required code into the mc distribution itself.  Also,
S-Lang supports transparent background unlike ncurses, which is important
for some users.

ncurses can still be used, it's just not default.
