   This means that M-x set-variable recognizes it.
   See also `user-variable-p'.
  If INITVALUE is missing, SYMBOL's value is not set.
+ If SYMBOL has a local binding, then this form affects the local
+ binding.  This is usually not what you want.  Thus, if you need to
+ load a file defining variables, with this form or with `defconst' or
+ `defcustom', you should always load that file _outside_ any bindings
+ for these variables.  \(`defconst' and `defcustom' behave similarly in
+ this respect.)
  usage: (defvar SYMBOL &optional INITVALUE DOCSTRING)  */)

  If SYMBOL is buffer-local, its default value is what is set;
   buffer-local values are not affected.
  DOCSTRING is optional.
+ If SYMBOL has a local binding, then this form sets the local binding's
+ value.  However, you should normally not make local bindings for
+ variables defined with this form.
