For what it's worth, I *would* like to at least explore putting
expect-like functionality in at some point, or at least some ability
to detect when the remote end is prompting so that Fabric can pause
and ask the user for input.

However, if that's even feasible, it likely wouldn't show up till 1.0
or later. There's a lot of other stuff that's both more
pressing/useful, and easier to implement, which needs to come first :)
