Ok. I've done that and put CSWterminfo-rxvt-unicode in experimental.
Does it look right? If I redo CSWterminfo with the extra dependency, can
I upload that without the rest of ncurses or would that cause problems?
Or would the ncurses maintainer (Dago?) prefer that I leave it to them?

The rxvt-unicode package also seems to create a stub to obsolete an old
CSWurxvt package. Is that still needed if I upload CSWrxvt-unicode. I
can't find any CSWrxvt-unicode or CSWurxvt in any of the past stable
releases though it seems to have been in gar since 2009.

Currently, it is only building without support for the perl plugins
which is a bit of a pity. Any help with getting that to work would be
