Apparently this doesn´t work because hi-lock-mode is called before the
variable is getting a value assigned.  See `hack-one-local-variable´ in
files.el --- IIUC, it calls the mode before it makes the variable.  It´s
hilarious ...

Since now I learned that a function is called for this, I can experiment
with a function defined in the mode I´m working on to read the patterns
and to set them.  This should be possible without using an advice.
