[code] [textadept] Sync Curses Cursor for tmux Copy Mode

Hi Textadept Users!

One bit of functionality I miss from Vim is the seamless transition from
Vim to tmux copy mode. The tmux cursor starts at the current position of
the Vim cursor. In textadept-curses, the tmux cursor always starts at
the bottom-left corner of the screen.

I dug into this issue a bit and it's caused by Scintilla drawing the
caret as a single, inverted-color character and hiding the terminal
cursor. Tmux copy mode starts from the position of the terminal cursor.
A workaround in the patch below is to move the terminal cursor to the
current position of the Scintilla caret after painting is finished. This
works for screen and tmux including for split views. However it doesn't
work for the command entry cursor.

Any chance we can get this patch cleaned up and merged upstream?

Thank you Mitchell for textadept! I'll never have to see vimscript
