The other function that demonstrates the same issue is read-char-choice
and clients that use it --e.g. magit et al then are forced to put up
hard to parse prompts of the form [u]rl, [n]ame, ... as an
example. Another good example of a hard to use client UI is org's export

Note: If you can see the screen, prompts like the above work once you're
familiar with them, with spoken output, they're a complete usability disaster.
