Hi John !

Last time you posted that, you forgot the sources ! :-)
As I started something identical that on my side, I simply finished it 
and put it in
the org.apache.commons.jelly.interaction package.

By now, there is only an AskTag that asks the user a question, and sets 
the value
to a variable (like yours), which is the basic thing that I would expect 
from an Interaction thing !

I like those ideas, the password is something that we could need, and 
the boolean value
is essential in interactive scripts.
I thought about a ChoiceTag, which must be the same as you drop-down 
list, even if
I can't see how my console would show me that drop-down list ...

If my JVM is GUI-enabled and if I don't want any GUI, do I have a way to
disable it somehow ?

hmmm, I need more infos there, I should find that in the sources :-)

I'd love to help you to integrate that, as I feel that it's something 
that can be very
