   I've never like Erase Customization.

After some more thinking, "Erase Customization" is indeed confusing,
as in several places in the Customize docs, the word "customized
value" is used in the sense of "set but not saved".  For instance:

  `M-x customize-customized'
       Set up a customization buffer containing all settings that you have
       customized but not saved.

I now propose the following State Menu:

Set for Current Session
Save for Future Sessions
Undo Edits
Revert to Saved
Revert to Standard
Set to Backup value
Add Comment
Show Current Value
Show Saved Lisp Expression

I believe that the use of "Revert" instead of the original "Reset"
takes care of Richard's objections to the original "Reset to Standard".

Note that the "Undo Edits" item is only active when there are edits,
in which case the individual setting State message says:

  EDITED, shown value does not take effect until you set or save it.

and the whole buffer State message says:

  something in this group has been edited but not set.

so that the "Edits" in "Undo Edits" is unambiguous.
