debconf able to ask multiple questions at once?
debconf-devel mentions that it tries its best to ask multiple questions
per screen, but I've never seen that occur. Is there a way to get it to
ask that way, or maybe some alternate front end that does it? I want to
be sure my package acts sane in such a setting.
I've added the state machine approach as it mentions so users can back
up, but it's rather bad if I ask more than one question per state, as
otherwise, it's not apparent to the user what "cancel" will actually do.
However, I can see how it would get annoying if debconf was able to
prompt with multiple questions at once and I've effectively serialized them.
