I think this makes a lot of sense for permanent-local settings made by
major-mode code.  But if the user calls M-x toggle-truncate-lines,
presumably it's because he finds the text to be more readable this way,
which will presumably still be the case after he changes major-mode.

IOW, maybe it's toggle-truncate-lines which should try and arrange for
the settings to survive a change of major-mode.
