 Hm, probably you are right in this particluar case, but there is a chance
that configurability would be useful for this feature. Do we know how other
browsers remove duplicates? Do they leave first or last item? How do they
compare - with or without case sensitivity? 
  So in some cases it could be better to leave removing duplicates to the form
handler, rather than perform it in lynx.
  But as I said, I'm starting to think that configurability is not needed in
this case.
