As dataloss is something really critical, wouldn't it be safer to
request the admin to type some character (such as [Y]es) to confirm the
DB conversion, and cancel it if the admin didn't do it within 60
seconds? Of course, should be able to get this answer from
the answer file too. I would feel much more confident doing it this way.
