I'm finding that I frequently work with Org-mode files that need
different configurations. I typically have a #+begin_src emacs-lisp
block in these files that I can execute with C-c C-c, so that emacs
behaves the way the file requires for the task at hand. When I'm
done, though, and jump onto the next task, which might depend on my
standard configuration to work correctly, I sometimes find that the
changes I've made break things. At this point, I typically save,
quit emacs and start over.

What I'd like to do is be able to have, in each file that contains
an emacs-lisp source block that changes the configuration, a
corresponding source code block that puts things back the way they
were before the block was executed.

Perhaps there is an easy way to do this?

What about making configuration variables buffer-local in the block
you execute? Once the buffer is killed, you should be back to your
previous configuration.

For example:

 #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
 (make-local-variable 'sentence-end-double-space)
 (setq sentence-end-double-space t)

This looks like an excellent idea.  Thanks!
