Re: [PATCH] allow function values for `enable-local-eval'

    This patch allows users to set `enable-local-eval' to a function.  If
    the function returns non-nil, the eval happens, otherwise it does not.

That is a general basis for a solution, but it has no specific
knowledge; it requires that to be provided by the user.  I'm not
necessarily rejecting it, but it would be more helpful to do something
that embody specific knowledge, and does the right thing (for some
cases) without requiring user customization.

    We have a project where virtually every source file has some "eval:"

Can you show me some of them?  Maybe we can simply allow these forms
just as the existing code already allows certain `put' expressions.
