You will do so too with the confirmation message. I would bet that if
after 10 "Confirm commit (Y/n)" the software will print "Confirm
rocket launch (Y/n)", "Confirm shoot in the foot (Y/n)" most users
will happily hit "Enter".

Don't save anything, just quit. If you saved once though, you are not out
of luck: open another console and kill the processes - I don't think
the wc has been tampered with at this stage.
