(I forget is we are top or bottom posting in this list.)
I agree with you.  I had not noticed the other package.
I basically took over from speps and have been in touch with upstream which has been helpful generally in adding new features, etc.
The ncurses issue arises since developer uses Debian and is still on ncurses5 and does not seem to have a lot of incentive at the moment to fix the code to make it compatible with ncurses6.
I will probably fix my side by building against ncurses5 source and use git for source, renaming my package mp-git.
The splitting of package is not essential IMHO but the ncurses issue needs to be resolved.
