more terminfo to be add into bterm. things in bogl-term.c, bterm.ti
I think.

cfdisk support an option '-a' which will use arrow instead of 
reverse video to 'highlight' the partitions. But it still use
reverse video on menu selection. That means '-a' is half-working.

I guess it is the same thing. bterm is not good enough. modconf 
use whiptail and whiptail use newt, slang (from apt-cache showpkg anyway). 
Any libncurses applications won't work on bterm either.
