        I don't understand your question.

        There are cases of restricted accounts using Lynx for which it's
"Save to disk" option is inappropriate.  There's a -restrictions=disk_save
which suppresses that option in the 'd'ownload menu, but it doesn't also
suppress it in the 'p'rint menu.  I suggested some time ago to Henry that
making it apply to both would be a good project, and he recently posted a
patch for doing that.

        I just eyeballed his patch, and it looked fine, but I put it off
for the FOTEMODS thinking it also needed code in LYMainLoop.c like that
for 'd'ownload which issues a statusline message if the built in options
are disabled and no other options are specified via lynx.cfg.  You don't
want to create, render, and display a temporary menu file which doesn't
actually offer the user any options.

        In the case of 'p'rint, I was thinking of the situation in which
both disk_save and mail are restricted, and no PRINTER:... options are
defined in lynx.cfg.  However, your message reminded me that the
"Print to screen" built in option will still be there, so I guess you
don't need the homologous code in LYMainLoop.c.
