Yup; what might be handy is if `enable-local-variables' could be a list
of variables, in which case it would only ask the question when there
were variables not in the list.  Something like `indent-tabs-mode' for
instance, seems likely to almost always be "right" (on the theory that a
consistent coding style within a source file is a good thing).

I personally already apply various tweaks to my personal settings based
on source-tree name (e.g. I force the C coding style to be `linux' in
any tree that seems to be a linux source tree), and I suppose I could do
something similar for tabs in tla source -- but of course, it's very
hard to get everybody to use such a hack.

.Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
