New Revision: 264488

  When merging docsinstall and zfsboot updates to stable/9 it was discovered
  that the slightly older dialog(1) requires --separate-output when using the
  --checklist widget to force response to produce unquoted values (whereas in
  stable/10 --checklist widget without --separate-output will only quote the
  checklist labels in the response if the label is multi-word (contains any
  Since these enhancements (see revisions 263956 and 264437) were developed
  originally on 10, the --separate-output option was omitted. When merged to
  stable/9, we (Allan Jude) and I found during testing that the "always-
  quoting" of the response was causing things like struct interpolation to
  fail (`f_struct device_$dev' would produce `f_struct device_\"da0\"' for
  example -- literal quotes inherited from dialog(1) --checklist response).
  To see the behavior, execute the following on stable/9 versus stable/10:
          dialog --checklist disks: 0 0 0 da0 "" off da1 "" off
  Check both items and hit enter. On stable/10, the response is:
          da0 da1
  On stable/9 the response is:
          "da0" "da1"
  If you use the --separate-output option, the response is the same for both:
  So applying --separate-output on every platform until either one of two
  things occurs 1) dialog(1,3) gets synchronized between stable/9, higher or
  2) we drop support for stable/9.
  MFC after:      3 days
