It's your call, but I sure wish you'd re-consider a change, even if
it means a glitch in the English default.  If it's localized, then the
translators (not so many) can make the correction, if they haven't done
so already.  Also, I wonder how many translators are lazy like me, and
just leave msgstr blank in cases like that.  Thus if you correct the
gettexted abbreviation, it might end up correcting some of the message
catalogs.  If it turns out that most Lynx users prefer, or expect, "1024",
then the release will end up being wrong _in their eyes_.
