I succeeded in checking it out, and had a quick look at it. There shouldn't be
big problems merging things to one SGML file (and thus abandoning cpp and lynx

I hope to look more in-depth tomorrow, and maybe already do some merging. No
promises though, I've got loads of other things to do.

I'm regularly in some "insecure" environment with X-terminals, and I've
figured out that the most secure thing is using an ssh-agent on a specific
machine (X-terminals send _everything_ in cleartext, but there is one specific
route in the network where there "can't" be any sniffers. You don't want to
know more ;-).
