This allow scrolling from a y-or-n-p:

#+BEGIN_SRC lisp
(defun y-or-n-p (prompt)
  "Ask user a \"y or n\" question.  Return t if answer is \"y\".
PROMPT is the string to display to ask the question.  It should
end in a space; `y-or-n-p' adds \"(y or n) \" to it.

No confirmation of the answer is requested; a single character is enough.
Also accepts Space to mean yes, or Delete to mean no.  \(Actually, it uses
the bindings in `query-replace-map'; see the documentation of that variable
for more information.  In this case, the useful bindings are `act', `skip',
`recenter', and `quit'.\)

Under a windowing system a dialog box will be used if `last-nonmenu-event'
is nil and `use-dialog-box' is non-nil."
  ;; ¬°Beware! when I tried to edebug this code, Emacs got into a weird state
  ;; where all the keys were unbound (i.e. it somehow got triggered
  ;; within read-key, apparently).  I had to kill it.
  (let ((answer 'recenter))
    (if (and (display-popup-menus-p)
