Any chance of putting a short hold until the Visited Page discussion comes
to some conclusion?

I am "uncomfortable" with starting a trend in proliferating the code with
calls to postoptions(); someone is going to forget something sometime.  It
doesn't seem all that hard to hit 'o'.

I also question even the need to have the "tree style" as a runtime option.
It seems sort of like a general preference to me, and not something that
one's going to want to change half a dozen times in one lynx session.  How
about lynx.cfg?

Was there a compile-time option to drop it?  Like other EXP_ "features,"
it ought to have one round off-by-default until the clamoring multitudes
ask for it.
