For a while now, there's been an under-documented feature that does what you
want.  Start lynx as:

lynx -cmd_log=yourfile

and do whatever it is you want automated.  Your keystrokes will be logged to
"yourfile".  When and if you get to a point in the session where you'll want to
take back control of lynx, I guess you'd have to "Q"uit lynx at that point, and
then edit the log file to remove that "Q".  I don't believe you can turn off
keystroke logging from within lynx, the way you can trace logging.

Then starting with:

lynx -cmd_script=yourfile

will replay your desired keystrokes.
