   There is, in my opinion, no need to make this any more convenient
   than that, neither the way you propose it nor the way Stefan
   proposes it.

But, while I do not think that there is a pressing need for it,
Stefan's querying, or additional .emacs customization possibility,
proposal is a lot safer than yours.

I believe that you misunderstood Stefan's proposal.  I believe that
Stefan proposed to allow to use something like:

(put 'myvar 'safe-value-list '(nil t))

So there would be no list of variable-value pairs to maintain, only
lists of values for individual variables.
