I guess it's not really worth the time to implement an infrastructure
for gv-expander obsoletion, because we will probably make use of it only
every 150 years (estimation).  So it could be that nobody wants to do
this for quite a while.

Would it be acceptable if the gv setter of `buffer-local-value' would
just print a warning (i.e., solve it "by hand")?  Not perfect, admitted,
but still much better than leaving this unfixed.


Thanks,

Michael.
