How about Goto +1, Goto -1?  follow_link_number() in LYGetFile.c looks
like the place to modify.  You would also have to do something in
LYMainLoop.c to allow +number and -numbers to be entered, and to allow
"number" to be distinguished from "+number".

This would give Lynx "go [forward/back] X-number-of [hyperlinks/pages]"
commands -- all quite useful.
