(And if the bookmark file is short enough, my recent change discussed

Using lynx locally (I haven't tried this with a remote one), with ncurses,
I get a rather smooth redraw.  Actually ncurses doesn't really "redraw",
it effectively and cleverly just scrolls the screen contents from the
first refresh down to make space for the added lines.  Of course that
would depend on what curses/slang library you use and on the terminal
