Until some other browser offers automatic redirection ala
CERNRULES, lynx has no serious competition for my affections.
Automagically getting the "printer-friendly" pages on frequently
used sites is just too cool.

As an ordinary user who doesn't code, but has contributed some
noise, my understanding is that the decision has been explicitly
made to stay with one list, rather than splitting off a
"lynx-user" version, partly just to keep the user input.  Lynx is
sufficiently non-mainstream a browser that traffic doesn't get that
heavy, and most of the users who write to the list seem to me to
be knowledgable enough for their input to be worthwhile.  Noise
for its own sake should probably still be avoided, of course.

As always, IMHO, and YMMV.
