Hmm...  I had this same thought when I read the txt file.  I then said
to myself "It sounds as if it's time to add something to the setup
process that can flag a popup dialogue with text from a file."  I can
envision a column in the selection screen that will indicate the type of
text that will pop of if the text is clicked.  Types of text could be
WARNING, README, DESC, etc.  If we had this then the announcement could
be given in the dialogue box.  

NOTE: No I'm not currently working on this or have current plans to do
so.  I'm just dreaming out loud.
