See whether custom-file (a variable) can do something for you!

One thing is sure: the custom-set-variables and custom-set-faces can only exist 
once. For GNU Emacs (not the file system). So I have one single body which then 
loads via (load custom-file) the customisations for different GNU Emacs 
versions. They have names à la ~/.emacs-Abrichtung-<emacs version>.el – but it 
could be OS specific as well.

Practical hint: move all your customisation in one version of custom-file. Copy 
this file to the other variants. Then edit these variants on the specific 
platforms via GNU Emacs' customisation interface!
