>> Only the form-based Options Menu and Visited Links are allowed.

i don't recompile Lynx with each development version (too time-consuming),
but if the Visited Links page now contains an option change,
i would like to record my protest too: it should be in the Options Menu.
> I also question the need to have the "tree style" as a runtime option.

if the Visited Links page has been re-shaped to be more complex
or to have the links listed in straight a/a reverse order of date,
i would like to record another protest.
what i would like to see is an option to have Visited Links preserved
on exit from Lynx, written to a file of the user's choice:
i do it by hand, renaming the file in  $HOME/tmp ,
but other users may not know about that or find it so easy to do.
