If your "user mode" is "advanced", you can see the URLs on the status
line of the L-page -- one at a time, by moving the cursor to each link.
At some point in this discussion I seem to remember your stating that
this was not true.  It is for me, and I find it sufficient.

Perhaps an option could be instituted where the L-page would display
either the titles (as now, substituting URL when title isn't known); or
always the URL.  Then, specially on the L-page, the status line would
show the other choice: that is, either always the URL, or title, falling
back to URL.  Then you could set this to "always show URL", and *still*
see titles, by moving the cursor to each link.  The advantage of this is
that no extra screen space would be needed; the layout of the L-page
wouldn't be affected at all.

To be clear: I mean a choice of EITHER:

  1. title-or-URL
  2. title-or-URL
  3. title-or-URL
  statusline: URL of what the cursor's on

(as current); OR:

  1. URL
  2. URL
  3. URL
  statusline: title-or-URL of what the cursor's on

(as I imagine David might want).
