I think the use of a table to regularize these settings is a good
idea.   With respect to the CAN_ANONYMOUS settings, I thought that
the setting for "bibp:" should use CAN_ANONYMOUS_GOTO_BIBP from
userdefs.h.   But I also thought parallel set ups should exist
for other schemes such as finger.  I couldn't figure out how
the setting
is used.   Actually, when I try finger: URLs now, I get an
unsupported scheme message whether I start lynx with -anonymous
or not.
