Thanks so much.  I'm impressed because I tried your theory that 
py-indent-offset would work like I wanted in second buffer even though
it did not work in first.  This was indeed true!!!

Why is it better/different to invoke my customizations in a "hook"
then just
calling my function in place of the mode???  My way worked for c,
java,
fortran77 and fortran90.  It would have worked in python too except
for
this one variable....

Should I redo all other langs to have "hook functions"??
Like cs-java-mode-hook, cs-fortran90-mode-hook, etc.???

If it is better in general for some reason then I'll do it.

I am *very* grateful for this insight.  This was really bugging me!

Chris
