Customize -- hmmm -- interesting (though I've never used it, always preferred
edit-options kind of thing).

But please say more about your suggested use of customize in this
situation.  Thanks!


Also, some more about its type checking, and its initialization
with side-effects.

Maybe also some examples of how you use it in your code-writing.

Thanks!

David
