No matter what garbage I assign to ediff-diff-options, ediff (i.e.

There is some strange stuff in ediff-diff.el regarding
ediff-diff-options that indicates it needs to be set via customize
(vs. setq).  I don't know how to invoke the customize machinery directly
from .emacs, but it appears that the end effect is supposed to be:

(ediff-reset-diff-options 'ediff-diff-options "--your-options-here")

Does that work?
