How hard did he look?
When I wanted a terminal-emulator state machine library for Anyterm, I quickly found ROTE. I later replaced it with something of my own (http://svn.chezphil.org/anyterm/trunk/src/Terminal.hh & .cc). Although it's often better to write your own rather than re-using (other peoples' code stinks!), it's good to be honest about how hard you looked!
