OK; I didn't know 'when' had a "for side-effect only" connotation, I was
using it as a shorthand for (if COND FORM nil).

Huh.  Based on the discussion for bug#37774[1][2][3][4], I had assumed
this kind of kludge would be necessary, but both Emacs 25.3 and 26.3
seem to evaluate and byte-compile the following snippet with no errors:

#+begin_src elisp
(defface foobar '((t (:extend t)))
  "Test extend in 26.3"
  :group 'org-faces)

 '(foobar ((t (:extend nil))) t))

Obviously I'm all for removing this shim if it's not needed.  From some
light testing it looks like removing it breaks the customization widget,

I'll post a revised patch as soon as someone can confirm or refute my

Right, that macro dates from an earlier patch, where I unconditionally
set :extend t on a bunch of faces[5].  I agree that it's overkill for
just org-block.

(Ugh, I actually got that right in earlier patches.)

Thanks for the review.  As I said, I'll post an updated patch as soon as
someone confirms or refutes my impression that :extend messes with the
Customize widget for Emacs <27.
