Sorry that I missed that there's no `fundamental-mode-hook'.  You can
use `after-change-major-mode-hook' instead.  You'll still need to test
the major-mode variable the way you did.

Also the right function is `make-local-variable', not
`make-variable-buffer-local'.  Sorry, I always mix those up.

Advice can certainly do the job.  But they are a very powerful tool that
can break a lot of stuff, unless you're careful.  Hooks are made for
this very purpose, however.

Some discussion about this is here:
