Give us some credit. With the proper warnings (though I doubt any users 
of ELinks are not aware of the differences between stable and 
*experimental*) you could get a wider audience and if you also include 
some info about bug reporting ("please include output of ... and ...) 
you might get some good bug reports.

But what do I know, I'm just a user and not a DD ;)

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
