I don't know why any one (of the current programs that we discuss) would
be any more likely, since afaik none of them are organized as an event-driven
program.  (just reading links now, there are some rather fuzzy ideas implied
in the code - perhaps it could be evolved there after some effort, though I
have a hunch it'll never get that far: no documentation, too much hardcoded

yes - I can too, but it would take a bit of restructuring to change things
from the keystroke orientation of lynx to make the needed functions really
available for use in that sort of environment.
