first of all, local is not posix and we want to stick to posix only for
maximum compatibility.

second, local is entirely useless. they only thing that local protects
from is crappy code. when doing variable assignments carefully, there's
no need for it.

(and some people claim that not using local is faster, but i think
that's bogus at best.)
