Re: no-byte-compile no longer considered safe?

    Ah, now I see what happened and I found the bug. I was actually being
    asked for another variable in the same Local Variables stanza. If you
    add the following to a file, make recompile will compile it:

    ;; Local Variables:
    ;; no-byte-compile: t
    ;; url-unreserved-chars: nil
    ;; End

I think the byte compiler needs a way to ignore all local variables
except those specific few it is interested in--and thus avoid ever
asking for confirmation.  Does anyone see a way in which that will
fail to do the job?

I think other commands will want more or less the same facility (but
with a different list of significant variables).  So the
implementation should be at least a little bit general.  Perhaps
involving a variable that specifies the list of variables to pay
attention to.
