"average user" will prefer stability, to see things familiar as he knows them
for years, without unexpected changes. There is nothing dangerous if quitting
after the first question without the second. If someone check this option in
lynx.cfg previously he will stay with that (OK). Another situation for new
features: sometimes it is reasonable to switch them ON by default to show the
new choise for user.
