Dear Emacs
  
  Suppose I have customized a variable.  The STATE button gives me
the option to Erase the customization.

Unfortunately, this ALSO erases the comment that I just wrote,
explaining (to me) why I don't want to touch this variable and want
its default value.  

  So perhaps this isn't a bug report, but rather a feature request.
Could you put-in *two* erasures under the STATE button?  Maybe

        Erase customization value
        Erase customization value and comment

I suppose one also might want just

        Erase customization comment

NOTE: Sometimes I don't actually want to erase the customization;
I just want to know what the default value is.  Within Custom, is
there a fast way to see the dft value WITHOUT erasing the current
value?
        Sincerely,   -Prof.  Jonathan King
