Hm.  Consider someone trying to avoid Customize.  So even if you
require to use Customize for this one, you can't say whether
(set-language-environment "foo") occurs before or after the
(custom-set-variables ...) statement.

So I think it won't help people who try to avoid Customize.

People who use Customize for both the language environment and
utf-translate-cjk-mode should get the same behavior as previously --
the :set-after arg is still there.

set-language-environment could holler if utf-translate-cjk-mode was
set when it is called.  That might be useful in some way or other.
Or it could look if utf-translate-cjk-mode is on, and if so, turn it
off then on again.  That would exhibit more dwimishness.

A preposition is not a good thing to end a sentence with.
