Binary size is a relatively straight forward and tangible place to
start. It benefits some, does not harm others.

Personally, I think code bloat is more "ugly."

That's what they all say, and that's why so many drops have fallen
in the bucket. It would be wonderful if a precedent were set by
contributers to either modularize? or macrotize? their code so that it
can be backed out easily. Leaving the dirty work to the coordinating
developer is not polite, IMHO.

> so an option in lynx.cfg or .lynxrc isn't necessary, IMO.

Agree, in this case.
