I guess Clement is actually reporting an AUCTeX bug and accidentally
used `report-emacs-bug' instead of `TeX-submit-bug-report'.
And Clément is right. With the current AUCTeX version modifying
`LaTeX-verbatim-macros-with-delims-local' and friends as a file-local or
directory-local variable doesn't refresh fontification. Until now,
these variables have been meant mostly for style file authors, and when
a style is loaded, fontification will be recomputed. But Clément's
use-case is valid, of course.
(1) can we move that bug to the auctex debbugs category?
(2) there's no hook-like thing that would be run whenever some specific
variable is modified due to file-local or directory-local variables,
no? So I guess the right way to make Clément's use-case work was to
provide functions for modifying those variables that can be run from
an eval: local variables block and then refresh the fontification if
