I also noticed that going into the minibuffer would trigger
mode-change hooks, and much hilarity ensued when I had a call to the
debugger dropped in there... I don't have more to add other than I am
following these posts with interest, and thanks for running it. Seems
like you will be able to handle both file and dir-locals, and that
splitting out file locals to bug #15658 was premature- I prefer the
way you're going, since it keeps the permanence within the buffer; my
proposal would have set the "permanent-local" property and alas
properties are always global.
