I'm going to have to go with you here.  I don't expect Lynx will ever
change licenses (though I would relicense what little I've contributed
to PAL or BSD in a *second*), but I personally consider the GPL way too
restrictive where usage is involved, and downright nasty and evil with
big sharp teeth when it comes to playing well with software under 
other licenses.
