may i suggest a change in version numbering ?

the 'dev' versions which have been produced during the past few years
-- 2.8.5dev.1 ... 4 ... 5 ... 17 --
correspond to what other projects would call eg
   2.8.6 ... 9 ... 10 ... 22 .
let's call the imminent version  2.9  rather than  2.8.5 ,
then call what wb (in Lynx trad'n)  2.8.6dev.1  more simply  2.9.1 ;
occasionally, there mb a special bugfix version eg .

this shd result in distros like Gentoo updating their Lynxes more often.
