Yeah.  Perhaps there should be a semi-general "buffer history"
functionality for these sorts of buffers?  eww has its own history, and
that's just a buffer-local variable that has a list of buffer
contents/points/etc, along with some history traversal commands.

I think that could be generalised to other modes that have similar
"remove everything in the buffer and display new data" ways of working.
Some modes might need more "restoring" code, though, so it should be
customisable by each mode...
