You are the first person to have expressed a doubt to this,
although the position of the emacs-w3m menus have been kept the
forefront ever since 8 May 2001.  Okay.  I don't persist with
the position of the emacs-w3m menus.  As compared with the
complexity of emacs-w3m, it is a trifling issue.  In principle,
I esteem the idea that things should all be decided democratically
or should all be made customizable.  Although we cannot do the
programming smoothly if all need to be decided by all users.
How do other people think about it?  Should it leave to Emacs,
be customizable or be as is?
