The file downloading works perfectly. The transfer from /tmp/lynx* to the ultimate location drove me to hard link something to work around the copy overhead on a system with a different /home filesystem, but that's tolerable, and I suppose configurable with a tmp dir setting.

yes - the copying from the temp-directory can be annoying.
Perhaps we could implement something that adds a hardlink to the target
file (marking the temp-file as "used") if that works.  iirc, we can't
simply rename it since the code assumes the file is still present in
the temp-directory.
