That can use `unwind-protect' because it has not to wait an undefined
period of time (until the page has been retrieved asynchronously).

So we would have to consider what could happen if the user aborts
loading the page, the url can't be retrieved, there is an intermediate
error, and such.  That's why I think using the callback of
`url-retrieve' would be better/cleaner.
