I wonder why you didn't post this to comp.infosystems.gopher? Oh
well, not cross-posting in case there was a good reason. I'm about
to start talking about the Linux build in a MSDOS group though (I
haven't got a DOS system with networking set up).

This is a very needed addition. Would be nice to be able to
customise the entry names though. Hmm, ~/.gopherus.bookmarks
looks fairly editable... Yep, OK I've found out how to do that.

Ah, that wasn't just a problem for me then.
I think it should be mentioned in build.txt that the Linux build
now depends on ncursesw instead of ordinary ncurses. I didn't have
the ncursesw dev package installed, and it took me a while to figure
out what was going wrong on as I knew that ncurses-dev was
Performance is much better now when scrolling down gophermaps (with
the Linux/ncursesw build). It doesn't trim the list of sdf.org
for being too long now either.
External viewers and a configuration file would be nice, though
already planned in todo.txt. For the latter, it would be nice if it
also had an option to set a default downloads directory.
