Sorry if I wasn't clear: I would not only make it customizable but also
set the default to a smart function, so that both `eww-write-bookmark'
and `eww-add-bookmark' exhibit a smarter behaviour.  If that would not
be smart enough to the users, they could still customize it.

I have to think about it a little more.

I can sign another assignment, no problem with that :)
