eww-after-render-hook does not seem to be useable because it runs in the
wrong buffer at the wrong time.

I hit the issue when implementing the following use-case:

1) Open login page URL
2) Automatically fill in username and password
3) Automatically submit the login form

My workaround something like this:

(defun login-fn-delayed ()
  (with-current-buffer "*eww*"

(defun login-fn ()
  (eww some-url)
  (run-with-timer "1 sec" nil 'login-fn-delayed))

It would be nice, if there was no need for run-with-timer and no need
for (with-current-buffer "*eww*"...).
