Package: whiptail
Version: 0.50.17-9.6
Severity: wishlist

It would be great if whiptail understood more of the "common options"
that dialog does, especially the timeout options. I use this option in
a package for Debian (netenv), and it would be nice to simply have a 

Depends: whiptail (>=...)| dialog

instead of fiddling around in the script (has a default timeout been
set by the user? If yes, is dialog installed?..., and possibly for
other options as well). Please note that I send this bug report from a
woody box, but I have checked in the current manpage and changelog,
and it seems not to be implemented yet.

Bye, Frank
