Hi Carlos,

Perhaps the best way to turn off flymake on a file-by-file basis is to
use the flymake-diagnostic-functions local variable instead, with the
added benefit that it won't be risky if you set it to a null value.

    flymake-diagnostic-functions is a variable defined in `flymake.el'.
    Its value is nil
      This variable may be risky if used as a file-local variable.
      This variable is safe as a file local variable if its value
      satisfies the predicate `null'.

I don't know how hard it is to make mode-specific eval's work properly
from file-local-variables but I would suspect flymake-mode isn't the
only mode affected by this.
