Please commit.  We need to release 5.2.0pre1 soon.  I can imagine
running through about 4-10 quick prereleases before we shake the bugs
out for a stable version.

I _THINK_ the problem is the noweb mode is really annoying about
buffer-local variables, and I think the solution is to hack at noweb
mode to keep some known variables around.
