It seems to me that the screen-at-a-time nature of 5250 would make it a
very difficult task to port Lynx to the AS/400.

If you started from scratch, you'd almost have to use a user-defined
display file and send the 5250 codes yourself in order to get the
flexibility you'd need...

It'd be a big project.  It'd be really cool, though!
