This is completely broken. It's fine by me to differentiate between 
frontends, but *not* to remove functionality for a particular frontend.

The correct way to differentiate between the frontends would be to _add_ a 
separate db_go for the first question and make the second question 
dependant on the answer to the first one.
Completely suppressing the second question is IMO not acceptable.
