Well, I lost that battle.  Still, wouldn't it be enough to make a simple
list of file:// links to lynx.cfg and all of it's included files?  I should
think it would lighten the load on Lynx and greatly simplify the code.

Yes, I can see that now.  I wish the meaning of _disable_ could be
EXTENDED to mean LYNXCFG:/ in its entirety.

Well it's probably nice if you're using INCLUDE (Is anyone really using it
in any meaningful way?), but I question if a "synthesis" would be as valuable
as knowing *which* include files in *what order* Lynx is referring to, if we
are talking about debugging a setup.  Isn't the last include the one that
Lynx would employ?
