I don't recall the original discussion (why it was deemed unsuitable -
perhaps because it duplicates a setting in lynx.cfg).  But you should
(unless there's a table-error) be able to use the ENABLE_LYNXRC setting
in lynx.cfg to override this and make the options menu save that value.

There was a long discussion before about the sticky-edit stuff.
(I wouldn't have done it this way, but don't want to half-rewrite it).

hmm - send a patch.

I've been bogged down in xterm, meaning to work on the options menu
(so it will look ok in Japanese, for example).  Perhaps I'll get that
done this weekend.  I spent a chunk of time last week finding that one
odd thing I noticed is an old bug (setting locale to UTF-8 and running
lynx -dump doesn't wrap any lines).
