I don't have it in any of my 8 w3m related
files, and not in my 108 other Elisp files
either. No, it is probably - as you say -
somewhere else in my system, and even more
probably so it is a remain of the Raspbian 9
(stretch) repos installation of
w3m-el-snapshot. Why 'aptitude purge' didn't
remove it tho, I don't know. Could it have been
put in some other file during the
pack's installation?

I'll look for it...
