I've been working on a dialog(1) replacement as used in the ports system.
The goal is to replace both the options and the license screen with a
single binary. It also features long descriptions, mutually exclusive
options, and some other nice features.

The source code be found here along with some testing scripts.

If you want to follow development:
hg clone http://dialog4ports.googlecode.com/hg/ dialog4ports

I will be adapting a recent patch from bapt@ to integrate this ports
system soon and send it to the list.

If anyone has any questions, concerns, or code reviews please let me know.
