actually it's not - pre text comes out as-is, while the other stuff flows to
the very-wide margins.  In that respect, it's mainly useful for viewing tables.

(Setting the actual margin at runtime is something I left for later - lynx
doesn't have that sort of thing except by prompting for data, and the toggle
was too nice as-is to abandon right away).

probably a good idea - I overlooked subprocesses.  Maybe adding some code
to stop_curses() would be the right place.
