To cancel, please just press cancel!

Just thinking it would make the extensions prettier if you changed the "press cancel to abort" line.

Very venerable phrasing, though in in the the old days I might have expected that to bring a whole sytem crashing down & produce reams of PMD, in octal.

Nowadays I think it's outmoded, a little de trop, and possibly upsetting to sensitive souls. I don't suppose "to Terminate" would be much better, abandon would do, but surely cancel=cancel? (Though not undo.)

Another thing, though it may soon not be necessary. There seems to have been a historical problem of the backup panel (and disconnected progess animation) never finishing in certain circumstances. I just felt that the panel could carry a pointer to some useful advice about what to do if that happens.

And now when I send (or commit) this suggestion, I'm going to be asked to "Submit", aren't I?

Oh, well
