Thanks.

The help for make-variable-buffer-local recommends using
make-local-variable. The latter accepts one argument - the name of the
variable, so it appears to depend on some sort of context to determine
which buffer in which to make the variable local i.e. I can't pass in
a reference to a buffer.

The ERC doc shows a erc-join-hook which states the function is called
w/o arguments and the current buffer is set to the buffer of the new
channel. So if I can just figure out how to determine which channel is
associated with the current buffer, the rest should be easy :)

buffer-name might be sufficient since it looks like the buffer name
begins with the name of the channel.
