I never understood the variable, so I don't have an opinion.
If Per, who wrote Custom, does not understand the purpose of
custom-local-buffer, how can we expect the average Custom user to
understand? I do not, and I believe that I reasonably carefully read
the involved source code.
For interactive use, using Custom and binding custom-local-buffer to
set buffer local values seems both more complicated and less convenient
than the alternative means, as long as there is a well documented Lisp
alternative to setting the value through Custom. If not,we are back
to a problem we have been discussing in another thread.
Per suggested using the variable for the purpose of putting Custom
themes into effect buffer-locally.
In as far as the following question is concerned:
Perhaps we should change it to make the variable buffer-local if it is
If it is going to be used to put Custom themes into effect
buffer-locally, then I believe that this would indeed be better: it
would seem that either one wants the effect fully locally or fully
globally. Like Per, I have no opinion on other uses, because I do not
know exactly what they are supposed to be.
Again, however, if custom-local-buffer is going to work reliably, for
whichever purpose, every existing or future :set function for a
potentially buffer-local variable, should be able to handle non-nil
