If we talk about multiple lynxen on Unix, a huge part of the code
should be shared, except the variable zone which mostly allocated dynamically
and so use a little space when certain feature not used.
Some people prefer to waste ISP memory than pay for extra disk quota
(and network provider think opposite, of cause).
I do not understand NHE goals, it's right.
