I just committed large changes in the text frontend, here is the
changelog entry:
  * '\r' is not supported by all terminals, which made progress bars
    unreadable.  The display is now:
      Progress bar title ..20%..40%..60%..80%..100%
    Closes: #195704
  * Add support for backing up.  Closes: #183107
  * For most questions, prints the short description below the extended
  * String and passwd questions accept an empty answer.
  * A contextual help message is available at prompt.

I would like to finish it tonight, my TODO currently contains:
  - When displaying select and multiselect questions, text height must
    be computed to not display more than a screen.
  - Replace fgets() calls by fgetc() so that Enter key does not have to
    be pressed.
  - Error templates must be highlighted (no idea how yet).

If you have time, please test it and let me know if you find bugs or
think about other enhancements.
