There was the patch at:
but I think the objection was that the "yes-to-all" and "no-to-all"
answers "A" and "O" were confusing for non-english speakers ("Oui",
for example).

However, I agree with the approach, and forcing a longer answer for
such a case like "yes-to-all" or "no-to-all" (or foreign equivalents)
is probably OK.
