Nnah! ELinks is starting to loose its feature jump here! Stop him someone! ;-))

Well, I think that it's a bad thing to save everything; when doing it already,
the cookies should be properly expired, IMHO.

Anyway, Links team was refusing the relevant patches...

Because People Are Stupid(tm).  Because it's cheaper to put "ACL support: yes"
in the feature list under "Security" than to make sure than userland can cope
with anything more complex than  "Me Og.  Og see directory.  Directory Og's.
Nobody change it".  C.f. snake oil, P.T.Barnum and esp. LSM users
