  I'm thinking about doing a patch that will add new lynx.cfg and commandline
option named "connect_timeout", that will specify the number of seconds to
wait before timing out (it will be multiplied by 10 to get the max number of
iterations with 'select' to perform, see function HTDoConnect). I looked at
the code and seems it's clear how to do it. This functionality won't be 
available for DOS (look at the code for the answer). Are there any additional 
thoughts or objections?
  Seems this will be useful for guys that (ab)use lynx as downloader.
