How widely available is ssh ?

How much can we piggyback on an existing security product such
as ssh or pgp?

The general idea is that the simple version of the command option
e.g. "-auth" or "--auto_authorize" should, without a further
=<list> elaboration applies any/all username/password
etc. definitions in an authorization data resource that Lynx
knows about through the usual channels (environment variable,
lynx.cfg, command option).

I don't think we want to turn a .lynx directory into something
that requires heavy protection.  Your keyring should be in a
safe.  Setting up the safe should be something the user does
either through Lynx or not through Lynx, via the services of a
locksmith which Lynx doesn't turn into.

Bruce Lewis, are you going to have to do something of this sort
for what you are going to do?

$.02 if I'm lucky...
