Chet, is there a way to make this a local variable if the builtin is called
inside of a function, similar to the way `declare` works?

You can  use make_local_array_variable if variable_context > 0. It takes
flags prefixed by MKLOC_, which appear in variables.h, but none of them
should affect your use.

Probably make_local_assoc_variable for your use case.
