I think it would still provoke those who spend time and consideration
on which of their files have;
        <META NAME="robots" CONTENT="all/none/nofollow/noindex">
and so forth.  Also bear in mind that no robot can read copyright
notices in the body of a page.

Just wondered: how easy/hard would it be to make Lynx obey robot
exclusion protocols in non-interactive mode?  This is also done
with HTTP headers?
