It might be a good idea, but since packages are developed separately by
manny people who don't know each other, it's not always so easy (especially
because you also still want to be able to specify different values
sometimes, because you might sometimes want to use one version of `gv' for
one package and another for some other package).

In the short term, the best we can do is find those redundant customizations
and unify them.  Which ones were you thinking of?
