make installer scripts require user attention

It would be cool if when you’re installing packages you could opt-in to an interactive mode where no installer scripts would run without you being prompted, allowing you to view the code in your $EDITOR, or agree to run or disagree to run.

It would be extra cool if you could say “remember my action for this version” and if that version is installed again it does what you did last time as a default.
