Yes, but minimizing the amount of serial data that you have to
transmit is the hard part (you'd end up re-doing curses).
Otherwise, every time the screen changes you'd have to send a bunch of
position and character commands, and miss the capabilities of the
terminal like "erase to end of line", "insert characters", "delete
line", and "insert line".
