I apologise for this formulation, it wasn't called for.  Henry didn't try
to sneak something in, he just stated his opinion.

I still maintain that
 - .lynxrc configuration does not make a lynx.cfg option unnecessary,
   nor the reverse;
   and that
 - taking that view is contrary to established (although not entirely
   consistent) practice.

I don't know any *good* reasons for such a change in practice.

I do know that I want to be able to turn OFF that Visited Links tree-stuff
at the lynx.cfg level.  No .lynxrc should be required to get rid of that
annoying change.
