Actually I think there is "controversy", certainly not between any two
people, but between "status quo" and "change".  I personally don't care
much for change unless there's good reason for it.

Sorry, jumped the gun as usual.  Somehow I got into my head that you were
pretty much freezing development (i.e., all major changes have been made),
and wanting bug reports (from ac-0.83) only.  I'll crawl back into my hole
and wait for a definite "pre-release" announcement.

I wasn't "expecting" so much as "hoping" for guidance.  It's hard trying
to do what seems reasonable when you don't have the whole story.

Probably the one "safe" change that can be made, although it does require
patching of .html files under lynx_help.

May have to wait until Saturday, but I'll get on it as soon as possible.

Another time to say it I guess, PLEASE DON'T BE SILENT.  If you (fellow
Lynxer) happen to find an error or an oversite, or see a better way,
speak up, please.

Bogus, yes, but some people need it like a security blanket.  Maybe put
it in quotes!
