MySQL Root Password? Nooooooooooooooooooooo. I'm not giving anyone the root password to anything. Not my wife, not the kid down the street, and certainly not some program. I'm sure that your software is cool, you seem like a nice guy, Chris, but this kind of question makes me queasy. It makes mu uncomfortable when human beings ask me this question, let alone software. Just giving you some user feedback here.
It should warn you that this step will require the mysql root password before you say yes/no.
If you say "no" to create database, it should see if the db exists and if the user has privs. If not it should tell you what to do by hand.
Other MySQL root issues:
bin/erase_archive - could easily explain what to do by hand
bin/upgrade - could also explain the SQL required to do the upgrade
