wpiseqed is simply (!) seqed linked with a different version of the
GCG procedure library routines for terminal handling.

See wpiexe:Makefile and look for $(WPIOBJECT)/terminalio.o and
$(WPIOBJECT)/syster.o which are linked to the normal object files
of seqed, lineup and so on to make the WPI versions.

Now, does anyone know a clean way to make these startup with something
other than a 24x80 window (defined by command line options of course :-)
