IMHO, all lynx users on WINDOWS/DOS platforms have previously some
expiriense in using lynx on UNIX (that is where theirs interest to lynx
come from). They (including me:) may feel uncomfortable if keymapping
happen to be different, I mean a limited functionality, not an
additional binding or features. This contradict to helpfiles at least.
And I never use "main screen" key; in a local directory it is
preferrable GOTO "." or "~" instead.
