Well...if you say so.  I know that Wolverine's ftp for WFWg runs in
console mode, but I read that a normal win32 application for win3.x
couldn't be compiled for console mode.  I personally wouldn't want to
create a GUI version of Lynx--I really, really like the ability of making
a win95 DOS box full screen to run plain text tcp apps (and don't forget
the users of dos text reader programs!).  Comparable GUI fonts are FAR
slower to refresh the screen and that makes the whole thing pointless for
me. Also, there isn't a 32 bit dial-up stack for win3.x.

Did I miss anything?
