In thelast two posts, I wrote about Emacs directory variables. Last week, the conclusion was that there is no easy way for `add-dir-local-variable`
to use the dotted pair notation in the `.dir-locals.el`
file.

Well, I was wrong again. This week, a patch was made
(and documented
) in Emacs which enables exactly that behavior. I just checked it, and it works great. (If you are interested in that kind of stuff, you can read the start of the discussion here
, and it is continued here
.)

Not to mention that last week, Eli Zaretskii introduced several fixes in the documentation
to clarify a few things related to directory variables.

What can I say? It’s just amazing.
