According to Brian:

 - normal bug fixes are allowed (though discouraged) on all packages
   iff there are no new features.

Since "it has to be recompiled with latest ncurses" is a bug, even if it
is not reported yet, I think it is allowed.

It would be a very nice thing to have that all priority: standard or
higher packages which need ncurses are rebuilt, so that a "standard
installation" does not use oldlibs if possible.
