Interned pathnames propagating bad information

    If it changed the -*- line I would have been shafted about 3 times a day
    by it during the past several weeks.  I don't think it should ever change
    anything about the file either; you only want that behavior because of
    the bug now that Zwei's assumption of a package when none is specified
    gets speciously associated with the file and then you need to undo that
    specious package property.
Can you explain how you would have been shafted?  I don't see it.  Maybe
I have a different model of what Set Package means or something.

I agree it doesn't matter as much if ZWEI didn't remember properties it
spuriously assumed.
