How does this use of multiple language environments work in practice?
I mean, the language environment setting is global, so how does it
interact with the various pre-existing buffers when you switch?

What is changed between those environments other than the preferred coding
system ?

Is this arrangement natural, convenient, and intuitive, or is it more
like a work around for lack of other forms of configurations (such as a way
to specify preferred coding system based on mount-points, for example) ?
