Yes, the Customize UI could use some improvement. Send your suggestions to
address@hidden Descriptions of deficiencies help; so do descriptions of
solutions and patches.

Tip: It's not a bad idea to use a separate `custom-file' (`C-h v custom-file'),
so that Customize does not write to your .emacs file. Put this, for example, at
the end of your .emacs: (load-file custom-file). That way, your `init-file' is
for hand editing, and your `custom-file' is for automatic editing by Customize.
