Which it does, unless *eww* already exists, in which case it switches to
the buffer.  Then one can kit a key 'G' and paste a URL.  Alternatively,
one can just do C-u M-x eww RET.

It works like info, and info works nicely.  It gives people the choice
either to enter a URL, switch to any existing eww session, or create a
new one.
