That's also my vague impression.
And I agree that this might help.

However, I disagree that it is not that much more convenient than setq.  For one
thing, it respects the defcustom :type spec.  For another, it uses a proper
interactive spec.  The type-checking in particular is a win, IMO.

(FWIW, I use it often.)
