Some time yesterday, between source dates 2020. and
2020., the terminal output from sysinst changed for the
worse, such that it is now needlessly using multi-byte escape
sequences where a single space would do.  For example, where it
previously output the string

   Shall we continue?

it now outputs the rather suboptimal


where \x1b represents the ESC character.

Since anita (pkgsrc misc/py-anita) is expecting the former string,
this breaks all anita-based testbeds except for the ARM ones which
install using images rather than sysinst.
