I consider it not userfriendly to double the amount of variables he
has to look for.  If we want to save the user the trouble of applying
his changes manually to existing buffers after customization, we can
use an appropriate setter function.

If the only thing that we have to cater for is "customize", I don't
think we need duplicate local variables.
