You have -- but not that phrase.  I meant that if Lisp does choose -to-
customize, that should take precedence because it is a choice (there's
your reason).

There's nothing stopping us from supporting any or all of these:

(customize-face-override-resources 'default '((:background ...)))
(customize-face-defer-to-resources 'default '((:foreground ...)))
;; or
(customize-face 'default '((:stipple ...))) ; always overrides resources
(load-resources here)                       ; ok, now we override customize
(customize-face 'fringe '((:box ...)))      ; this overrides them again

The question is whether that's better or worse (I said "complicated" as
the metric) than doing something clever in a custom-file (or .emacs) or in
C when loading these preferences.
