Wouldn't it be better to have an option to dpkg-logger meaning, 'wait
for a return key after displaying the message'?
Then a replacement dpkg-logger could decide to *not* wait for the
return key (e.g., because it's 3am and we're a cron job and there
is really noone nearby to press that silly return key).
