Lynx doesn't send the field yet, (or I would probably have known
it's name :) but I will add the support immediately if I can
get at least one server writer to support it.

One issue I'm not sure of is. What should I send if the user
types the URL in on the command line or with a "goto" command?
Probably not sending the field would work, but maybe
we should be exacting and send something like "User entered"
