There's always the breakout directories on for convenient
checking of a previous version's single file...

But that alone doesn't cut it, as I have over time repeatedly tried
to point out...

Start with <>,
follow the pointer.  It will take some reading of messages.

I don't know why nobody has added code that solves the problem, it
shouldn't be any more difficult than what's already being done for
other cases.

I haven't done it because
   - I don't use cookies much, basically only for testing.
   - I have no need for saving cookies with -source, even
     some doubts whether lynx should do it.
   - I would want to review whether lynx should really call
     exit_immediately from withi  HTFWriter_free, I consider
     that unclean.

But to someone who just wants to make a patch to remove the current
limitation, those considerations need not apply to you.
