Oh, boy.  I must be really thick.  I _still_ don't understand.

Do you just want a tailored list of options, so that people who say
M-x customize-group RET emacro RET see your list of options?  -- See
the `members' argument of defgroup.

I don't think it is a good idea to write two defcustom statements for
the same variable: the second defcustom will override the docstring
of the first, and so people see the emacro docstring instead of the
Emacs docstring.  Maybe the Emacs docstring has been improved?

Maybe I should have a look at emacro to learn what you're trying to
do, from an overview perspective.  But of course, lazy guy that I am,
I wouldn't mind if you told me :-)
