 Is it so complex? I don't believe you..

 FYI, DUMP_WITH_BACKSPACES works by emitting LY_BOLD_* and LY_UNDERLINE_* in
the HText for lss-enabled lynx, and doesn't modify HText in other case. 
 To avoid any possible problems (and to forget about emitted backspaces) IMO
it's better to restrict the use of '-dump-with-backspaces' so that it will 
be allowed only in combination with '-dump' or '-crawl'. Such restruictions
solves the problems as I understand (since mail sending can't be triggered in
'dump' or 'crawl' mode). 
 As for how rare LY_SOFT_HYPHENs are  - they won't be rare if hyphenation is
