Yup - I don't know why, but for some reason I can see it more easily
when others do it than when I do it: I sometimes spend *minutes*
bewildered ("*how can that be?!?!*").  At some point, I get into
"Terminator" mode, go down the list for the appropriate response,
remember the C-c C-c problem, whack my head on my desk a few times, and
go on.  But when next time comes, it's as if it never happened before
(well, perhaps things are improving: I generally go into "Terminator"
mode much more quickly nowadays - a couple of times in the more distant
past, I gave up in disgust, went to bed and didn't think of C-c C-c
until the next day.)

It would be so nice if org did the org-mode-restart bit automatically
after a change to a #+KEYWORD line: in some cases (e.g. TBLFM lines) you
have direct feedback so it doesn't matter too much, but in other cases,
that feedback is just nowhere to be found. I don't know how difficult it
would be to implement such a facility[fn:1], but maybe it can be added
to the GSoC list if somebody has a bright idea on how to do it.



[fn:1] ... without making it too expensive to run: I wonder how
expensive it would be running org-mode-restart from an idle timer -
probably prohibitive if the file is large enough. And I can imagine
situations where that would be even *more* confusing: changing behavior
apparently without any other change - can you say magic?
