as a mere user (who can read C programs when he has to), i would like to see
Lynx in  2  versions, one for system use -- including all the stuff
about security, anonymity, directory editing etc etc -- & the other
for individual use -- to be installed by a user in his/her own directory
in UNIX or VMS or Windows.  the latter should be a lot smaller.

it would also make the huge  lynx.cfg  &  userdefs.h  files less intimidating
& frustrating: i now have to go all the way thro'  > 1000  lines of stuff
to find the bits which are relevant to me as a single-user user.

i am not now & never have been a Sysadmin ...
