First,  thanks for all the hard work on `lynx`.  It is a
great pgm because even though I have sufficient bandwidth,
I usually prefer to browse text-only.

After much fear and loathing, I have settled on a prefered
cookie strategy:  I accept them all but will not keep most.
This is very easy to do by setting the cookiefile read-only
_unless_ I want to accept some useful cookie [NYTimes

Unfortunately, if set PERSISTANT_COOKIES will set writable
and write the cookie file at session end.  I want that
write to fail!  If I clear PERSISTANT_COOKIES, then that
lynx session will not read the cookie file with the cookies
I really do want to load.
