Yes.

This summer, I started rewriting url-retrieve and friends in the way
that was discussed on emacs-devel a ... couple years back:

(with-url "http://fsf.org"; :timeout 10
                           :concurrency 5
                           :request-method "POST"
                           :headers '(("Foo" . "Bar"))
  (message "The result was: %s" (buffer-string)))

but I kinda stopped before I really got started, because I couldn't
figure out how to make this work in the non-lexical binding case.  And
having this work only with lexical binding seemed kinda meh.

You wouldn't happen to have any ideas in that area?  >"?
