Ok, it wasn't clear to me before what you wanted.  So you want something
that looks like the history page?

You can't have the title unless lynx already has already seen it recently.
(In the same session.  Unless someone adds a "permanent history list".)
So some entries could have tho lines, and others one line.

Personally, I don't. :)
I just haven't missed it. And it means that less links fit on one page.
So I won't make a patch for it.  But if you can convince someone else,
it shouldn't be too difficult to change LYList.c to do what you want
(since the function calls to get the title and addres are already there).
