What I wanted to say, but didn't know how.  Important is that libraries,
community nets and the casual user don't download this experimantal
animal.  There needs to be a loud and clear warning at any site that
offers it for downloading that this distribution is for testing only.
Might not want pointers to it on or Subir's Lynx links.

This is without a doubt the ultimate goal, but it's a tremendous undertaking.
Isn't Rob's work nudging Lynx in that direction?
