Then the user figures something's wrong with his computer.  Significant
frustration ensues...  Remember, the lot that'll be using are the sorts
that flood computer companies with Telephone calls asking where the 'any'
key is...  Often, if you put in something like "A small dialog box will
come up every so often to indicate a required package is being installed,
if the box is red in colour that means a package over xxxMegabytes is
being installed.", you will call after call asking why this little dialog
box keeps coming up and why it's sometimes red.  TTYL!
