Re: Changed outside --> set, in Customize UI

    I believe that even after any reimplementation, a change made in
    .emacs should definitely never be equated with something "Set for the
    current session".  It is just as permanent as something set in the
    custom-set-variables form. ...

Especially since custom-set-variables automatically writes into your
.emacs file.

Please, whenever you write about the custom-set-* applications, say

    automatically written into your .emacs file, rather than 
    written by you in your .emacs file

This way, it will never even occur to you that a change made in a
.emacs file might be "Set for the current session" only.

Thank you.
