I also do (p)rint of '\' rendered source which is not optimal. This is to
locally save those little self-congratulatory, frequently ephemeral, external
media references to an e-com client's website.

I've also always wanted the filenaming capability to quickly

(c)lear or
disable or
generate an autodated filename

instead of the URL-based "suggested file name"; can EDITOR be invoked? or a
script hook?; pretty sure I can set a default d/l location, but a little file
browser navigation would be pleasant, too. The file browsing capabilities of
lynx would not be a candidate, would they?
