SubjectRe: [PATCH] ncurses based config V2
Hi Nir.

Some comments as followup to Willy.

Seconded. Please try to find a lighter set of default colors.
You may be inspired by one of the menuconfig color-sets.

I agree that we could use a lift here - so please do not go for the
default color set of menuconfig.

I do not see any cursor which is annoying. menuconfig has the same issue.

Please bound this.

This looks like some ancient stuff and it must be a better way to
show the short-cuts.

I would really appreciate if you could look into the above issues.
If you do a repost with this fixed I will try to do a proper review,
including code-review next time.
