Sounds like a preference feature for the various installer facilities, such
as Installer, Metacello, SqueakMap (if it has its own and does not only use
the others). Should Gofer and Monticello be included in that list? I think
not because they are somewhat lower-level.

Moreover, if the triggered action specifically indicates (in the label, not
in the tool tip) to update or install something, I would not want another
confirmation question after I clicked on it. Would you Christoph?

An abort mechanism during installations with a different UI than Ctrl+.
might also be nice for the user experience.

If we did this in the code of the menu items, instead of the installer
facilities, we would have to it again for the next installing menu items or
other installing opportunities.
