It looks (after a quick look) to me that Lynx is doing internal
decompression of .gz files, regardless of what mailcap says. Lynx doesn't
internally grok bz2, and thus seems to hand off files that don't end in
.Z or .gz to an external viewer, without re-rendering their output? Is 
that what's happening?

I surely don't understand this part either...
