He was afraid posting to lynx-dev not being subscribed to the list.
Should we correct the text to avoid such [mis]understanding?

Well, seems we need LYNXOPTIONS: page done without temp files but via
HTStreamStack(). Would this solve all the security issues in this area?
If yes - I could provide a patch (LYNXMESSAGES: was the recent example).
BTW, recently implemented tree-view at VisitedLinks page have an options
subpage _without_ any hidden security field and seems submitted OK.
Is it correct or am I misunderstand something (no code handy)?
