Yes, something like that. That's why I installed something supposed to
warn me if a unknown process tries to communicate with another process.
If it works as expected, I would get a warning about trojan.exe trying
to access Agent, and I would have to chose between blocking it, allowing
it, and making a rule from my decision to prevent future warnings about
the same thing.
I'm not requesting that feature, I don't need it, but it won't bother
me if somebody decides to implement it, as long as it can be disabled.
Also, since software is always changing, many times in annoying ways
(I'm _not_ talking about GnuPG), probably soon or latter I'll have to
get used to a confirmation screen where there was none in the previous
I think I won't participate in _this_ discussion anymore, since I
already said I'm neutral about that feature, and don't have anything to
say that might be valuable to the discussion.
