One more question about the global vs buffer-local variable
'comment-style': 

if I want to temporarilly set it to another value in a program, do I
have to check first if its a global value or a buffer-local value that
is set for the buffer, or is this immaterial, i.e. whenever I call setq
on 'comment-style', it will apply to the version that is active in the
buffer?

In other words, can I simply call '(setq comment-style "plain") at the
beginning of the program, and then e.g. '(setq comment-style "indent")
at the end of the program, without worrying if 'comment-style' is global
or local for the buffer at hand?
