this doesn't always seem to work, at least not for me.  BIND always
works but certain org variables seem to be ignored when set using local
file variables.

The variables I refer to are often, maybe always (?), related to export
functions.  My gut feeling is that this has something to do with a copy
of the file being made for the export and maybe emacs not getting a
chance to set local variables for that copy?  Grasping at straws here,
mind you ;-)

I have no idea how to debug such behaviour but I have experienced this
for a long time now.  Any hints would be welcome, of course!
