   * actioned straight away, otherwise the prompt will be queued for action
   * once previous prompt(s) have been cleared.
   * Queued prompts using the same aKey may be amalgamated into one prompt to
   * save repeated prompts to the user.
   * @param aKey    A key to determine whether or not the queued prompts can
   *                be combined.

   *                           need to prompt right away, even if there is a

   *                           immediately may not be synchronously, on OS/X.
