If this means what I think it does, I'm strongly against this option's
new default. Lynx should send a user agent by default, for example so
that people see it's actually used or can optimise for it. The ability
to turn it off is good only in corner cases, like pages that misunder-
stand the "optimise" bit above.

Please explain ;)
