Allthough dialog does come with the basic means I did describe,
it looks a bit... bulky? I don't want to sound impolite, but
consider the width of

	      +------------+
	Name: |            |
	      +------------+

to

	Name: ____________

which would be more... elegant. But "man dialog" is very interesting.
It even offers functionalities (lists, yes/no buttons etc.) that
I haven't thought of.

Thank you, I'll take this into mind.
