This is for deciding what options to have the welcome to your new image wizard suggest, right? In *that context* a single frame cycle delay spent being helpful to a new user seems very reasonable.

Now, in an image set up to be used within some scripty-command-line-doit, absolutely not. I'm fairly sure nobody was suggesting that. If there is a problem where the wizard is getting invoked at an annoying time (for example, your scripts for building a vmmaker image) then ther must be a decent way to make it skip the whole thing. Might it be appropriate to say that if any commandline input is provided then the wizard stage is skipped completely?
