Oh yeah, that does exist!

As far as I can tell from the source, this feature is available on all
targets except VMS.  In fact there's an #ifdef DOSPATH that forces it
on, not even allowing it to be disabled on DOS builds.  Commentary
suggests the default format is different on DOS, but capability should
be there.

Maybe dan d. previously ran Lynx on DOS or Windows and is used to its
simpler default formatting.

'largefile' was copied from 'long-list' and then not re-described.  Seen
in 2.8.9-rel1 (source I had handy) -- ignore if fixed since then... ]
