Thanks for being careful to help tying the loose ends.
Perhaps like this?
I take that your original motivation was to confirm to run a tool on
this particular (as opposed to another) path, but the user can also
take the prompt as to confirm to run this (as opposed to some other)
tool. The latter of which of course is irritating for those who
told which exact tool to use.
I think the large part of the reason why you and Felipe had to have
a long back-and-forth was because it was unclear that the prompt
served these two purposes from the documentation, so I attempted to
clarify the first motivation by adding a brief half-sentence.
