While looking for clues to the ECB problem, I noticed that there are
two backtraces in the package smoketest (search for "Backtrace").
Both of them are due to an invocation of outline-minor-mode appearing
in file local variables. Should we suppress the evaluation of file
local variables while computing autoloads?
IMO, yes. We're treating the file as a whole as static data; file
local variables generally affect display and editing, which we don't
want in that context. Suppressing evaluation would be consistent with
their treatment during loading, as well.
We need to be careful about normal-mode, which ignores settings of
file local controls.
