I think everyone who uses Emacs is by definition a power user ;-)

Emacs user = power user.

What is realy needed is a tool which could help Emacs users to
customize things more easily than Customize can do now.  I see
it as something implemented on top of Customize which will allow
to specify a set of related options in one Customize buffer and
to navigate between such buffers along a logically defined path.
And every Customize buffer could have a [Help] button leading
to the appropriate section of the manual.
