It seems that the burden of hitting "M-%" (my toggle-read-only) was just
not enough to trigger the "annoyed enough do something" reflex.

Now that I think about it, I generally _am_ more reluctant to add
something to my .emacs than I am to customize a variable, not really
because it's harder, or more convenient (though it is slightly), but
because I dislike my .emacs file growing large and cluttered with lots
of miscellaneous tweaks -- I tend to lose track of stuff among all the
noise.  I think I'd rather be able to use a `by name' interface like
customize for the small random changes, and put only "significant stuff"
in my .emacs file (some small custom modes, non-trivial hooks, etc.).
