I suppose so - but was giving my experience in that area.  Since xli
writes cooked messages, and ncurses wants to put the screen into raw mode
(actually ocrnl off), my change delayed putting the screen back into raw
mode until I press return - fine if I don't want to have a lot of detached
xli's on the screen.  (After pressing return, lynx repaints the screen).
