I agree in principle, but for historical reasons I've got a setup similar to
David's (I do not remember exactly why, but I guess because I did not want

Amazingly enough you can still do "lynx someotherURL" even with an alias. At
least on my system lynx has the "feature" to go to the last URL on the
command line when several are provided.
