*** In processing a local variables list, Emacs strips the prefix and
suffix from every line before processing all the lines.
*** If the local variables list contains any variable-value pairs that
are not known to be safe, Emacs shows a prompt asking whether to apply
the local variables list as a whole. In earlier versions, a prompt
was only issued for variables explicitly marked as risky (for the
definition of risky variables, see `risky-local-variable-p').
At the prompt, the user can choose to save the contents of this local
variables list to `safe-local-variable-values'. This new customizable
option is a list of variable-value pairs that are known to be safe.
Variables can also be marked as safe with the existing
`safe-local-variable' property (see `safe-local-variable-p').
However, risky variables will not be added to
`safe-local-variable-values' in this way.
*** find-file-read-only visits multiple files in read-only mode,
when the file name contains wildcard characters.
