Sometimes, when the program encounters a strang, errorlike situation it
might be usefull to ask the user.

For example, when you do "cvs commit" and omits the message, cvs asks if
you really want to commit without a message.

Another example: When you add a directory using TortoiseCVS and it finds
a file it doesent recoginize as text or binary, it will stop and ask if
you want to use -kb.

In these cases I personally think such "are you shure?" questions helps
to avoid problems, rather than just beeing anoying.
