Local file installation dialog

If you invoke PK on some local rpms, PK will ask you if you want to install those files. However, the dialog window looks bad as it displays something like
I think PK does not need to display this information. Take a look at the window you get when you "permanently delete" files from the trash:
Are you sure you want to permanently delete the 2 selected items from the trash?
If you delete an item, it will be permanently lost.
Similarly, PK could just ask "Are you sure you want to install the selected n files?"
If you think showing the file names is important I would at least not show the paths, or

You could have more files than one path, so this would be difficult to do in a UI. The only reason we show the full path is that we have to be very careful about what we are asking the user to install. Maybe "the selected" is good enough.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I think it's important we show the full path to not trick the user to installing something insecure.
