        This should be a matter of a single bind () call.  Which is
        sufficiently cross-platform [1].

        This doesn't help in the case when one wants just Lynx to use
        this specific interface, or when the user in question has no
        superuser privileges.

        Honestly, this one is in my TODO list, but I cannot make any
        promises regarding when I could start actually working on it.
        (Though it seems like a single rainy afternoon task.)
