Well, give it a whirl, pops. C-x C-w ... C-x C-v M-x compile. You'll
see that compile will prompt you with a string with the # neatly
hidden as an argument to the shell's : operator.

Your mission, Jim, if you decide to accept it, as they used to say on
Mission Impossible, is to explain in Info, how you would like users to
make such multi line Local Variables.

P.S. I will be offline due to typhoon...
