you (TdR) may well be correct, but you should understand
that maintenance & development of Lynx is at the generosity & mercy
of an international community of volunteer programmers,
some of whom -- incl LE & TD -- started out as users making inquiries.
so if you have the necessary experience at C programming
& have the time available to help,
do let everyone know exactly where you see room for improvement
& do feel very welcome to contribute patches of your own.
the latest 2-8 is at
& the latest development version is at  -/-/current/  (i believe);
TD is the current volunteer co-ordinator.
