Perhaps this wording is better for portability, but it sounds decidedly
odd when it follows a checkbox -- people are used to checkboxes being
followed by descriptions of actions, not questions.
Maybe the dialog front-end ought to use a similar format to the other
front-ends, instead of a leading checkbox, e.g.,
Should I pain box in green? [Y]
where the cursor sits on the [Y] and toggles it to a [N].
