his defgroup statement here for others to consider.  Once we are
happy, such a file would be easy to add to Emacs -- no other files are
touched!  And it wouldn't run against the feature freeze.  :)

There is a page on the Emacs Wiki, for example, where people tried to
collect the variables newbies are most likely to customize so that we
can just offer them in a "Most Useful" group or something like that.
Unfortunately, it seems that people lost interest (including me,
