Sorry it took me so long to respond.  I've been rather busy lately.  You
are correct about message box.  However, until wxWidgets 3.0 becomes
minimum version for KiCad this will be a fairly big effort.  The current
message box does not support changing the button labels or including the
extended message.  You would either have to create your own custom
message box or pull the latest version of the wxMessageBox code from
2.9.3.  In the mean time, there are plenty of opportunities to improve
the messages in many of KiCad's dialog boxes.
