I got from it that he just wants to do away with the question
entirely.  I'm having a hard time figuring out where you guys want to
go.  In one hand you say you don't want dialogs at all that ask people
to think or even respond, it just does things.  On the other you say as
soon as you allow installing software that is outside of the repos we
ship, the jig is up and we shouldn't care about any sort of security
form that point on.  I'm lost :(
