   The diffs for what version? Mr. Dickey's? I won't spend a single minute
of my time even looking at that version.

   Whether Mr. Dickey includes my work in his version or not is my least
concern. Fortunately, Lynx is free software, and no one except perhaps
UKans can claim to have authority over it, so Mr. Dickey's version is not
one bit more "official" that my planned one.
   But don't worry about it, OK? Right now I have absolutely no time for
hacking on Lynx anyway, as I first need to finish building my VAX UNIX
system (using some flavor of 4.3BSD), and this will keep me busy at least
through the summer.

   P.S. Some personal comments. I have a hard time imagining what market
niche is Mr. Dickey targeting his version toward, since a loser who likes
automatic bull**** would surely prefer Netscrap over Lynx.
