Wasn't one of our goals to allow an unattended installation?

If packages stop here and there with that important messages, a sysadmin 
will have to be "tied" to his workstation during the whole installation 
process, even if he is just "cloning" a previous installation in a 
different machine...

I think it would be better if those messages are logged and shown later,
when the installation is finished (offering an option to skip them 
altogether, for the people that do many identical installations/upgrades).
