I'm happy to report that Andy Piper has issued a patch to fix the lingering 
Local Variables/revert-buffer problem that exists in XEmacs 21.4.9-12  This 
removes the necessity of the inconvenient work-arounds that I've posted in the 
past.  Kudos to Andy and the XEmacs Project for working with the ESS community 
to get this resolved so ESS works as advertised on their stable flagship 21.4.12

	* files.el (revert-buffer): Make sure local variables get processed,
	even in the case of an optimized reversion.
