One area that still needs to be reconciled for distributing the merged
development code is the nomenclature.  Historically, Lynx versions were
LynxI-J-K.  Tom's patch sets have used dates, and Klaus' sets have been
numbered and lettered.  Plus, the PRCS code management software defaults
to increasing decimal numbers (without leading zeroes), but it wil allow
additional descriptors in the "version" identifier. 

So (deep breath), what about just calling the development version
lynx-current, and using the PRCS software mark userdefs.h (or some other
file like "version.h") the way Klaus has it now: 

/* The strange-looking comment on the next line tells PRCS to replace
 * the version definition with the Project Version on checkout. Just
 * ignore it. - kw */
/* $Format: "#define LYNX_VERSION \"$ProjectVersion$\""$ */
#define LYNX_VERSION "2.7ac-0.6"
