            MSNCP have backspace support (it's have a textarea with full keys support like up, down, left, right, delete, insert, backspace, home, end, ^U, ^W).

            Python/NCurses have a bug, I'm using curses.KEY_BACKSPACE to detect the backspace key, but this only works with ^H as basckspace key, not with ^?. Try with this combination.

            On next release I will add support for both key combinations; but support of backspace key is on MSNCP since alpha version.

            Nice but clumsy
            No backspace support makes using this not a plesent idea. Nice work tho but you really need to update the readme with program information like what the letters next to the contacts mean.

            Keep up the work tho im sure it will be a exclent program to work with.
