not to say this isn't a good idea, but currently for curses I would  
use the treeviewing with retree from PHYLIP
and for short read alignments the samtools tview or Gambit (MarthLab)   
works great or something like ralee for viewing MSA alignments (though  
targeted for RNA editing)

Just that there are prior examples so would be able to learn from them  
if you still wanted to roll your own here.
