That sounds great!

Some thoughts based on using this for a bit:

How are you handling enabling/disabling the mouse events? I haven't looked
into the terminfo/whatever to work out whether the terminal supports the mouse
reporting. It would be good to be able to enable/disable it from Lua anyway;
I often suspend textadept-curses, and need to turn the mouse reports off until
it's resumed (or else the shell/other programs get confused). I guess that
might affect running other programs too.

Again looking forward to trying it out. :-)
