vile would do it like this:

setv %myvariable &date '%Y/%m/%d %a %T' &ftime $cfilname

One of these may help:

setv %myencoding $file-encoding
setv %xxencoding &local file-encoding

However, in both cases the description of modeline mentioning a "variable"

   | %{name} | any internal mode/variable value, given its name             |

may only work for variables beginning with "$" (if so, I could probably
make that work with little effort).  vile doesn't do function-evaluation
in modeline-format though (I suspect that would be more work).

it doesn't save that information when it exits - though it may be possible
to write a very complicated macro :-(
