       notcurses_detected_terminal  returns  a free-form string	describing the
       detected	terminal.  Terminal detection takes into account any specified
       terminal	 database (see notcurses_init(3)), the TERM, TERM_PROGRAM, and
       TERM_PROGRAM_VERSION  environment  variables,   the   response	to   a
       XTGETTCAP[TN]  Device  Control  String,	the  response to Primary, Sec-
       ondary, and Tertiary Send Device	Attributes control sequences, and  the
       phase  of  the  moon.  You should not build logic around	this response;
       all relevant properties of the terminal ought be	abstracted by Notcurs-
       es.  This is only made available	for diagnostics.

       notcurses_supported_styles  returns a bitmask representing those	styles
       for which the terminal advertises support.

       notcurses_palette_size returns the size of the terminal's palette, used
       for  palette-indexed color.  It will always return at least 1.  This is
       independent of RGB TrueColor support.  No terminal is know  to  support
       more than 256-indexed color.

       notcurses_cantruecolor  returns true if the terminal advertises support
       for RGB TrueColor.  Note	that the RGB APIs of  Notcurses	 can  be  used
       even in the absence of terminal RGB support (Notcurses will map the RGB
       values to the palette).

       notcurses_canfade returns true if Notcurses has a means by which	it can
       effect fades.

       notcurses_canchangecolor	 returns  true if the terminal advertises sup-
       port for	changing its palette entries.

       notcurses_canopen_images	returns	true if	Notcurses was built with  mul-
       timedia support.

       notcurses_canopen_video returns true if Notcurses was built with	multi-
       media support capable of	decoding videos.

       notcurses_canutf8 returns true if the configured	locale uses UTF-8  en-
       coding, and the locale was successfully loaded.

       notcurses_cansextant  returns  true  if the heuristics suggest that the
       terminal	can properly render Unicode 13 sextants.   Likewise,  notcurs-
       es_canquadrant and notcurses_canhalfblock return	true if	the heuristics
       suggest that the	terminal can properly  render  Unicode	quadrants  and
       halfblocks, respectively.  notcurses_canbraille returns true if Unicode
       Braille is expected to work on the terminal.  None of  these  functions
       return true unless UTF-8	encoding is in use.

       notcurses_check_pixel_support  returns  a non-zero pixel	implementation
       if bitmap support (via any mechanism) has been detected,	and  otherwise
       0 (NCPIXEL_NONE).

       Some  terminals advertise support for TrueColor,	but then downsample or
       otherwise degrade the provided RGB.  In this case notcurses_cantruecol-
       or will return true, but	the full spectrum will not be available.
