The above is what you need to use if you _don't_ use customize.
It seems that customize tries to be helpful and does extra quoting of
values you insert. So in the customize input field, you just type:

\usepackage{foo}C-q C-j
\usepackage{bar}

That results in the value being set to what it says in the doc-string.

I can add a comment along these lines, but it's a general customize
feature.

The other items are wishlists.
