I don't care much for mouse clicks, but "80x25 characters and a 8-bit
font" is a very low common denominator for the amount of text one can
show on the screen when selecting packages or answering complex
debconf questions. The 8-bit-ness of the font is not a problem for
people installing in English, but being able to see more lines at a
time should benefit everybody who want or need more control than just
accepting all of the defaults.

                          for continuing anything: It works satisfactorily."
