We want LSMB to work ok without Javascript.  That it works  better
with Javascript is fine and good.

However, I don't think you can fix the problems with the current
generations of text-only web browsers with Javascript.  A better
approach is to recognize this and for us to continue working towards a
stable and maintainable API so that ncurses interfaces etc. become
possible.  I'd rather have us drop support for the text-only web
browsers (a process which has gradually occurred to a significant
extent between 1.0 and 1.2).  I have still used elinks with 1.2 where
I needed to, but it is a painful experience because this is not the
sort of thing that Elinks developers had in mind when they developed
