Probably easy to do.

Seems also easy.

I also mentioned this in y first report.  I would even suggst to force
"lynx-like" motion because I'd regard this way more practical and it
does not harm because the <left>/<right> keys are not doing any
reasonable thing (or am I missing something?)

See my "force lynx-like" suggestion.

Same feeling on my side.  I do not see any reason to keep unpackaged
copies of upstream sources.  However, I need to adapt what those people
in the team started and I assume the yhad their reasons.

I was offline today and have not checked the bugs you wrote about above.
Will check this in more detail tomorrow.
