        … And, honestly, having dealt with multihomed hosts, I'd
        consider it quite an ordinary feature for a networking
        application to provide.  (In particular, GNU Wget has
        --bind-address=, and OpenSSH's ssh(1) has -b, etc., why
        shouldn't Lynx?)

        I could probably see if I could make a patch, unless it's
        already implemented.
