Why would anyone read that message?  It's a full page of all-caps
shouting.  It looks just like a EULA, and who reads those?  Something
like this would probably work better...

	Type "I agree." if you agree, or control-D if you don't:

Pardon my ignorance, but can't they just re-write it in C?  It
seems a shame to introduce a dependency on C++ in something that
is 99.9% C.
