In fact my script is a bit stricter than your question: it doesn't
allow 'yep' or 'nononono'. Some utilities allow that (probably with a
reason) and even non localised answers (for instance in German 'j',
'ja' (pronounced 'yaa') would be valid answers, but also 'y', 'ye' and
'yes' are allowed).

If you want that you would only have to ask whether the answer starts
with the same letter as your valid answer.
