This method seems to partially work.  I can clone an html buffer (in
html mode) and switch to the cloned buffer and issue M-x text-mode.
The modes are correct for each buffer however they seem to share

So if I do M-x font-lock-fontify-buffer while in the text-mode buffer
I see the changes in both.  Same if I issue the command in the
html-mode buffer... the text-mode buffer then gets fontified for html.

I'm using cvs, so perhaps it's just my version.  If this is a known
limitation of clone-indirect however, then it wouldn't be as useful a
method for multiple modes (at least for me).
