Script-local variables (those declared as local outside of a handler) 
are the only ones affected by that setting.

By default, the engine will clear the values of script-local variables 
during compilation, but LiveCode being "live code", sometimes it can be 
helpful to preserve those values even while you're editing.

The Variable Preservation option gives you control over whether than 
happens.
