I get the following when I test my script with auto-answer="yes":

Wouldn't it make more sense to ask the opposite question, e.g. "Is it
OK to use the suggested name? (yes/no)", in that case auto-answer
"yes" would accept the default?
No, because the most common "auto-answer" case is when csih-client
scripts are invoked by setup, via a postinstall script. In these cases,
the auto-answer setting is "no".
Frankly, I do not believe there should be an "auto-answer=yes" option at
all. It's just too dangerous. However, csih retained it because the
original foo-config scripts supported "auto-answer-yes", but I do not
recommed its use.
