Wow, this one is really a hard decision.  As much as I want to "do the
right thing", and have it be truthful, I probably lean towards this being
the default.

Or maybe for new lynx users (*are* there any new lynx users anymore or is
it all us fogies?), make them read a README the first time they launch it
that lists an "if you hae problems" list, one of them being the user agent

I think iCab (the Mac alternate GUI browser that I use the vast majority of
the time when I use a GUI browser) defaults to its own useragent.
