LYNX-DEV update

        An update of is available in:

* Mods of the cookie handling based on the latest pre-draft.  Add a
  Cookie2: $Version="1" header in any requests that use historical
  cookies in the Cookie: request header, so that modern servers will
  use Set-Cookie2 headers with modern cookies in their subsequent
  replies.  Limit the scheme for commentURLs to http or https, not
  just to network servers (e.g., gopher is now barred too).  Include
  a $Port attribute in modern Cookie request headers if it was set
  via a server's reply header.  The pre-draft indicates intention
  to drop the requirement to combine Set-Cookie2 and Set-Cookie
  headers if both types were received.  We're still combining them,
  but based on bona fide one-to-one correspondence checks (which were
  not specified in the earlier draft), so that's OK, and we'll get
  rid of that needless overhead if the current pre-draft holds up
  and becomes an official IETF draft. - FM
* Added a -nocc command line switch for disabling the Cc: prompt
  for self copies of mailings.  Note that this does not disable
  any CCs that have been incorporated within a mailto URL or form
* Added a NO_FORCED_CORE_DUMP compilation (userdefs.h) and configuration
  (lynx.cfg) symbol, normally set FALSE, which if changed to TRUE will
  block forced core dumps on Unix via abort() calls on fatal errors or
  assert() calls on potentially fatal error checks.  Also added a -core
  command line switch for toggling the default. - FM
* Updated the documentation and 'h'elp concerning the new symbol and
  switches. - FM
* Worked in KW's mods to support 'z'apping of large local file
  renditions. - FM
* Mod in HTFWriter.c to change the statusline appropriately when an
  uncompression has completed. - FM
* Fixed a spaghetti ifdefing glitch in LYOptions.c - KW
* Mod in GridText.c to avoid traversing the full list of anchors when
  HText_endAnchor() is called with a non-zero anchor number and it
  corresponds to the last anchor added to the HText structure. - KW
