I think we're misunderstanding each other :) What i really want is to
just set in my .emacs something along the lines of

  (setq org-agenda-files '("/home/jao/org/a.org" "home/jao/org/b.org"))
  (require 'org-install)

and be sure that org won't write any custom-set-variables or
custome-set-faces in my custom file. Last time i tried doing that,
org-agenda-files appeared automagically in my custom-set-variables
section, together with a face definition for font-lock-warning in my
custom-set-faces... they were put in my .emacs, but i was using a
separate custom-file, so i just set and loaded custom-file before
loading org, and then org-agenda-files and font-lock-warning are written
by org in my custom-file instead of .emacs. But since i'm setting
org-agenda-files in my .emacs, what i'd like is that it wouldn't appear
in custom-set-variables.

My understanding was that, in order to prevent this behaviour (that is,
the automatic modification of custom-set-variables and -faces), my only
option was to use the org files list file. Am i confused?
