Not in general; the pager intercepts stdout, but we prompt to and read
responses directly from the terminal. Only in extreme cases do we fall
back to prompting to stderr and reading responses from stdin. All of the
above is true for Windows, too.

When I rewrote the terminal abstraction for prompting, I tested it by
redirecting both stdout and stderr to /dev/null; and I still got the
prompts in the terminal.
