I do too, but that's because there has already been a rel-version of
lynx put out with that as the default.  Perhaps it shouldn't have been
done that way, but it was, and now is not the time to be changing it.

Doing so is quite likely going to confuse and/or irritate alot of folks
when the next rel-version rolls around, and suddenly their cookies don't
work anymore.

Yes, I know ... RTFM ... but in this case, the relevant information is
buried away in the CHANGES doc, and in the lynx.cfg file.

Perhaps *if* this change is going to go in -rel, there should be a (hope-
fully small) README.1ST file, that identifies this and other significant
user-visible changes since the previous -rel version (the TEXTAREA EDIT/
DWIMEDIT, and KEYMAP related changes also come to mind for this).

Of course since Klaus doesn't mind politely responding to all of inquiries
on "why don't my cookies work anymore" type questions ... :-) ...


PS: I have yet so see *any* complaints come in that anyone has had
    problems with the current -rel default setting being "on", so I'm
    not sure just what problem is being solved by changing the default
    setting, at this late date.
