I actually managed to get this working (if I get your intentions right) with
the following code:

commands = {":1", ":2", ":3"};
for command in (commands)
  ok = $command_utils:yes_or_no(tostr("Execute ", command, "?"));
  ok && force_input(player, command, 1);

the ,1 makes sure the input is entered at the front of the queue, and the
suspend(0) gives the server time to dequeue the command. I tested it and it
seemed to work fine for me.
