Right. BTW, does it work for your prettysrc settings:
I saw a DTD fix before read_cfg() in LYMain.c, so assume may be a problem
when reloading changes in another current DTD or so. Is it OK for you?

Not sure the benefits:
Currently we have a compromise between a huge jar of options (lynx.cfg) for
advanced and expetienced user, and a small menu-driven subset (we should not
normaly looks into .lynxrc et all, it is a machine generated file).
It is not possible (and not useful) to made all lynx.cfg options menu driven
since that introduce more problems than it solves.

just few points:
- .lynxrc has options with other names when in lynx.cfg
so we should add synonyms to provide compatibility, etc.
- we should restrict most lynx.cfg options for .lynxrc
- command line flags in between...
