That's okay, but it's not clear whether what Werner wants still fits
this model, which was originally invented to be global for the entire
Emacs session.  Since now the issue (as I understand it) is to provide
a more fine-grained feature, we should analyze again whether it is
still appropriate to specify the whole thing (language, input method,
default encodings for all of their varieties, etc.) with a single
string argument, or indeed with a single API/UI.
