I got to check this on my DOS machine, and see that unescaped
backslashes are accepted in DOS filenames in lynx.cfg. Is it possible
to require forward slash in filenames for INCLUDE, so that backslash
can be used for quoting, or is the code for DOS to accept backslashes
too integrated to avoid here?
