I haven't used screen, so I don't know whether this is more or
less a PITA, but...

I use CERNRULES to do automatic redirects to the
"printer-friendly" (uncluttered) versions of pages on some
frequently used sites, but the naming scheme isn't always
completely consistent, so I wanted to be able to temporarily
disable the RULES so I can follow the un-redirected, non-friendly
original link.

To that end, I set up an EXTERNAL for 'http' to start a new lynx
with a different set of command-line arguments.  Do that, and it
would just be 'V', '.'. When you're done with the -nounderline,
'Q' back to the original lynx.
