As long as the tools do not require root or system admin type privs to
build, install, or run, I agree with Henry - when designing features, 
give consideration to the idea of a seperate process.  Of course, that MAY
make lynx more difficult to implement on non-Unix OSes (like MacOS, Windows,
VMS, etc.)
