Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by "these are not a problem".
With your change, *.JPG files will no longer be treated like *.jpg on

isn't this change backward-incompatible?

Why remove these comments?  The existence of Custom doesn't preclude
people from customizations in plain Lisp.

Thanks.
