Well...  If anyone does feel like it, I'd be willing and eager
to do any alpha- and/or beta-testing needed on 68k builds.  And
I can help out a little with resource editing, interface items,

doesn't have a lot of Mac-specific code in it.  Might be better
to write a kind of framework -- terminal emulation, dialogs, AppleScript
support and the like -- something which current and future Lynx
code could be wedged into, with minimal tweaking.

Rolf Braunn's Better Telnet is under the GPL, and chunks of that
might be useful for the terminal emulation.

It doesn't support Drag+Drop editing, but at least it allows you
to copy and paste in the terminal window.  And it can print, on
paper no less.  ;-)
