Heh. :)

For backup convenience I've symlinked all my ~/.* files (and from
other dirs) of relevance into ~/sys, so a simple 'tgz -cf bak ~/sys'
saves'em all but keeps the clutter out (cleaner diffs, easier to
track important changes).

 ~/.mailcap -> sys/.mailcap

My bookmarks don't live in ~, which is covered by .lynxrc (no link).
lynx.cfg +.lss are accessed by their VARs pointing to them (no links either).
