One thing I find fundamentally difficult about this and other things is that there
does not seem to be a way of telling whether it is a console session or a X session,
and we (Debian) seem to have defaulted for the console.
I would love to hack "readline" to show a dialog box when in X mode, so that
"sudo", "gnupg" etc. can ask for password in a dialog box (I don't know how I would do it).
I don't know what I should be doing for "Yes/No" questions. Each application program
probably needs to be addressed.
auto-apt exists, and I would really love to have it ask me with a dialog box
"... is not installed yet, install? Yes/No"
