Well yes and no :) I like console version, in fact that i write many of my
programs in mc's internal cooledit. However, i must remove all console
support from xwpe, because it is impossible to keep up working both xonsole
and X11. I am for scenario, in which will be 2 executables, X and nonX,
shared sources, and screen output and other GUI related things will be in
separate files - one for (maybe gtk ?) X, second for (ncurses?) console -
sharing the same naming scheme. This will be hard to do, but it'll allow 
adding support for new (crossplatform?) widgets.
