Right, I'm pretty sure you really do want setq-local though.

Yeah, it currently just does `pp' for the whole structure.  We would
need to special case the top level printing of values I think.  It might
be interesting to have a pretty printer that's able to take a sort of
"descriptor" of printing structure, to handle this sort of thing more
generally.  But I'm going to go ahead and close this report as notabug,
since special casing the dir-local printing is not worth the trouble.
