Yeah, it turned out to not work in my use case either.  I had forgotten
that eww sometimes renders stuff asynchronously anyway (when url.el gets
a redirection, the entire thing is then run off of a process filter
instead in the main thread, if I follow the logic here (and I may well

So the user interface problem remains.  We don't want to suddenly start
asking people stuff while they're doing other stuff, but here we kinda
need to ask them stuff...

In any case, exporting that variable is not the answer.
