Sleeping on this, the only feasible solution I currently see here is
that each thing that wants to do a HTTP request has to say that the
request should be "non-interactive".

Since url.el is asynchronous, just binding a special variable to be
picked up later isn't feasible -- url.el will (on redirects) run the
redirected request in a different context.

So this will require some slight surgery of the url.el code...  which is
not my favourite thing in the world to do.  *sigh*
