    * The "Truncate Long Lines in This Buffer" option now set the default
      value, instead of the buffer specific value, which mean the name is
      misleading.  However, the old code attempted to save the value, and
      you can't save a buffer specific value.  So either the name should
      be changed, or we should not save the variable.  Opinions?

I think it is more useful, for this specific option, to set it only
for the current buffer.  Which means it should not be saved at all.

The only argument for setting and saving the default value is
consistency with the other menu items.  But I tend to think that is
not a strong enough argument to outweigh the greater utility of setting
this particular option buffer-locally.
