Terminating debconf dialog frontend?

msttcorefonts is broken. it's got an infinite debconf loop. I've
submitted a bug, but I haven't recieved the bug number yet

Debconf's needs a way to terminate an install when using the dialog
frontend, so that if we run into debconf loops, we can have something a
little more reliable than trying to hit enter(to dismiss the dialog) and
then control-C(to exit the installation) fast enough before the dialog
pops up again.

Would it be possible to make the dialogs respond to control-c?
