Basically.  Lynx has a good network front end to get the raw HTML (in
the WWW library section).  This internal chunk is what I was referring to.

I also have "upget" which is in my export control section, since it does
SSL, - basically it copies the result of any URL to stdout, optionally
stripping the header and doing other things as needed, but the only real
advantage is that it is a tiny program because it only does the one thing. 

In lynx, the renderer and screen management are tied together.  My lxtab
program does this, but at a higher level

Server -> (lxtab/t2thtml) -> HTTP.c/HTTCP.c -> [*] -> GridText.c, etc.

The [*] is where the new function would go.  For portability, it might be
best to act like a download, then feed the /tmp/file to a program that can
write the output to another known file.  lxtab uses the pipe-and-fork
