This has now been fixed, and it's using read-multiple-choice, which
makes the character choices underline and bold on graphical systems, and
"[l]ike this" on non-graphical ones.

Some terminals do have the capability to underline and bold stuff, but
have nil (display-graphic-p), right?  Is there a way to determine
whether we're running on one of those terminals?  Because
underlining/bolding is prettier than [t]his.
