This patch would make it impossible for people to alter fill-prefix
(from the mode hook, for instance), so I don't think this is the right
Looking at hack-local-variables/normal-mode, file-local variables are
set after the mode has been set up, so you can't have your mode set up
variables based on file-local variables. (If I'm wrong here, please
somebody correct me.)
So you can't usefully set
bibtex-entry-offset/bibtex-contline-indentation as file-local variables
without also setting fill-prefix that way, I think?
