Robert, do you have any other way of detecting that process is waiting
for user input apart from watching for silence? dpkg frontend is using
curses interface, maybe hooking into it would help?

If that's not the case, I guess waiting for silence for, let's say 1 minute, indicates that process is not doing anything and waiting for action. Adept would need the way to:
1. Turn on monitoring for silence in Konsole, with specified timeout (probably using DCOP).
2. Get notification about silence detection from embedded Konsole. I am not sure how this could be done. Maybe Konsole could just raise the application in which it is embedded?
