No, merely personal preference.  I'd like to be able to use the same MUA
with all applications that support E-mail responses.  Lynx is justified
in supplying a rudimentary mailer.  But when a user asks, "Why doesn't
Lynx do what Pine does for feature X?" the proper answer is to be able 
to tell that user how to use Pine as Lynx's MUA.

I don't claim to be a Lynx expert; I just hack it occasionally.  :-)
I got a lynxcgi to work once; I don't see how it applies to the activity
resulting from selecting a mailto: URL.  I can find mention of neither
"lynxprog" nor "pseudo=prox[yi]" in "Lynx Users Guide v2.8.4".
