It already does. At the moment REQUESTRESTORE_TEXT is shown, we add the 
REQUESTRESTORE_COMMAND to the history, if available. Then we provide a 
shell and the user has to explicitely type 'exit' and acknowledge he wants 
to continue.

The rationale for providing a shell is so that after the restore the user 
does not forget to continue the process, which during testing proved 
problematic at times.

So all this should already have been the case when using rev692.
