maybe.  What the script does is to save the customizations that it finds
in lynx.cfg and put them on the end of the installed lynx.cfg

If you apply the same changes each time, it "should" mean that you don't
have to apply the patch to lynx.cfg (since it would be redundant).  It
might be confusing if you change the customization, since what's installed
is read last.
