lynx-dev LYNX: how to bookmark a google-search-results-page? (via "="'s link-to? Won't allow!)

Suppose I've submitted a google-search, and WOW!, man
has that found a trove of wonderful links!
OOPS -- I'm being called down to dinner out -- gotta
go, gotta get off the net, shut down lynx, etc --
BUT -- when I come back, maybe even after the weekend
is over -- then, I really want to revisit this stuff.
And I want to do that by remembering the site (well,
the long, complex google search-string I submitted to
google) -- and I want to do that via a BOOKMARK.
QUESTION: How to bookmark a google-search, for repeating
at a later date?
Idea-1: Ah ha -- I'll bookmark the "=" page, and say
"link" it asks me "page or link?".
Nope, cannot do, that page is plain ascii-text, no links there!
SUGGESTION: turn that page into one with LINKS?
Idea-2: The history-page, since it *is* HTML and *does*
NOPE -- Lynx, for some reason, who knows what,
won't *let* you execute the "a" key on it.
Idea-3: the "V" page, which also is via html, and
also does have links.
HOORAY! -- it lets me to it.
SUGGESTION: Change the hist-page so it works the same way,
ie lets me add bookmarks via its links.
SUGGESTION: *DOCUMENT* this somewhere, so the *user* can
learn this "trick" (bookmarking indirectly via a back-link
from a subsequent (V or History pages, or if you fix & allow
it, the "=" page too).
