I think the main question is whether there is any way to reset the
state after replying with "don't ask again" (apart from restarting).
Typically in user interface design these types of "show next time"
queries are only convenience shortcuts to settings that are also
accessible via some other means (preferences etc).

In this case it is a bit more involved as the setting is stored
by file (similar to e.g. how browsers store security exceptions per
URL and display them in a list). That may be overkill here but at
least a way to reset / clear all of the mappings would be nice.
