The idea is a quick and dirty to convert a text rendered by eww in to
Org format.

----------------------------------------------------------------

For example, if eww read 

    <b> bold text </b>

and converted it to

       bold text   (Imagine a bold face)

I can do a search and replace on bold text property and get 

      *bold*

which is the Org equivalent for a bold markup.

----------------------------------------------------------------

For example, if eww read 

    <h2> level 2 headline </h2>

and converted it to

       level 2 headline   (Imagine a bold face, but with text property :tag h2)

I can do a search and replace on h2 property and end up with

      ** level 2 headline

which is the Org equivalent for a headline.  If it was Creole or Oddmuse
it will be (I think) 
     
     == level 2 headline

----------------------------------------------------------------
 
This is a quick and dirty way of "importing" an HTML document in to
plain markup text.  I have a feeling that it can be useful.
