I have implemented a boolean option '--bell' that when enabled, causes pacman to ring the terminal bell when there is user input required. I find this tremendously helpful when there are long delays between user input and I am busy doing other things at the same time. Let me know what you think.

The patch is attached. It applies to the src/pacman folder of the current (4.1.2) release.
This task depends upon

Looks like this one fell into the memory hole. Has this been read and rejected, or not read at all?
