      (define-alternatives web)
      (setq web-alternatives '(("eww" . eww)))
      M-x web RET TAB RET

If the only user-level entry point for eww is `eww',
this would do the right thing.

Is that the case?

For epa, there are several such entry points, including
epa-mail-encrypt and epa-insert-keys.  We could do

(define-alternatives crypt-mail-encrypt)
(define-alternatives crypt-insert-keys)
with the suitable variable values, but that won't give
the right result.  The user would be asked to choose an
alternative for crypt-mail-encrypt, and independently
to choose an alternative for crypt-insert-keys.

What we really want is for the two commands to be synced
so that a single choice of alternative applies to both.
