I have anew news service that insists on my using long, unweildy username and 
password combinations.

Is there a way to get lynx to provide username and password to the
news server?  Needless to say, putting the
server, passwrod and  username in the  .newsauth file did not

I'm not  even sure this is possible since
I  couldn't find any mention of it in the lynx documentation.
