I've never tried `lynx -dump', but thought there may be a case
it is useful.  I can't think of any definite example, though.
I'm negative to adding it to emacs-w3m because I'm satisfied with
the `c' or the `u' command that copies a link to the kill-ring.
Even if there is an urgent need for a listing feature, it would
be enough and more typical of emacs-w3m to make a Lisp command
like w3m-list-all-the-links-in-the-other-window that works with
`w3m-lnum-follow', I think.
