Stop being so dismissive, for crying out loud!

Whilst what you've said is true, it evades the point.  That point is
that there is lots of elisp code (including standalone CC Mode) which
calls the damned function, and now that it has been removed, that code
does not compile.  This is inconvenient.

I think that m-l-h is only unnecessary when the LOCAL param is set in
some calls to `add-hook'; i.e. for each instance of m-l-h, some hacker
has carefully to work out what the implications are.

Removing `make-local-hook' is causing bother.  It's eradication may be
worth that bother.  But please accept that that bother exists.
