i can't speak for any of the other lynx-devers,
but this & your other responses -- eg that Lynx has a very low priority --
seem to show that i should have no interest in what you are doing,
beyond a bit of theory re how UNIX should have developed
(BTW i have your historical accounts from 1998 archived).
you admit that Lynx 2-7-2ms not only lacks the many features added
by a number of people during the past  2 years ,
but may also be open to malicious attacks which Lynx 2-8-3 thwarts,
so there's every reason for me to continue to use 2-8-3 here on IRIX.
otherwise, if you want 2-7-2ms tested on non-pure-BSD systems,
obviously you will have to find willing helpers, which i am not.

-- agitprop snipped --

you do not mention Linux: what do you find wrong with it?
if nothing, why are you developing PureBSD ?
