Yes.

`local` is now a special keyword that essentially evaluates to the
directory of "most local" variables.

`global` is now a special keyword that essentially evaluates to the
directory of "least local" (i.e. global) variables.


In addition to that, `local` of course retains its well-established
meaning after `#` to form the `#local` directive. (Technically, all the
directives are actually the `#` token followed by a keyword.)
