No, after my patches, Auto Compression mode changes _both_
`load-suffixes' and `load-file-rep-suffixes'.  The main purpose of my
patches was to fix the type of bugs that started this thread.

   So you should add it to cus-start.el.

If we want to allow the user to customize a `load-suffixes' type
variable, then I believe that we need one, or maybe two, new
customizable variable(s), say `basic-load-suffixes' and
`basic-load-file-rep-suffixes'.  These would represent the values of
`default-suffixes' and `load-file-rep-suffixes' that `load-suffixes'
and `load-file-rep-suffixes' _would_ have if Auto Compression mode
would be disabled.  In addition to provide user customizability, it
could also make the way Auto Compression mode plays around with
`load-suffixes' and `load-file-rep-suffixes' cleaner and more reliable.

My present patch does not do that, but I could adapt it to do that if
