Is that even well-defined?  What happens when the code inside `letf'
also alters this state?

For example, code like

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(let ((my-alist '((x 1))))
  (cl-letf (((alist-get 'y my-alist) 2))
    (push (cons 'y 17) my-alist))
  my-alist)
#+end_src

or

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(cl-letf (((buffer-local-value 'x my-buffer) 20))
  ...
  (with-current-buffer my-buffer
    (set (make-local-variable 'x) 0))
  ...)
#+end_src

what would "reset the state" mean?


Michael.
