This seems like a nice idea, but the prompt `Set foo to local value' is wierd
-- it seems to associate `local' with the value _before_ setting, which
doesn't make any sense.

I think something like `Set foo locally in buffer to value' would be better
(if you don't like the length, you could get rid of `in buffer', but I think
it makes the meaning much more clear).

P.S.  All information contained in the above letter is false,
      for reasons of military security.
