Is 'w' still unused?  For years now I've been undefining 'm' and instead
using 'w' as "LYK_MAIN_MENU" to unconditionally return me to "WWW_HOME".
  ("WWW", the reason for chosing 'w'.  No need to press 'Y'.  Patch at:
To me anyway, the Internet has evolved to the point that people no longer
would associate "m" with "Menu".  I've often thought 'm' might be useful as
a "mailto" command to call ones default mailer, but there are so many other
ways to efficiently call an external mailer from Lynx.  "M" for "mark" seems
like a real natural for a key command.
