Ok, didn't know this. I have some reading to do regarding the specifics
of `lexical-binding` and how it affects (or not) defvar, defcustom, etc.

Both my points were made assuming that we didn't want the file-name-handlers
to be called; but now that you mention that we do want them to be
called, they no longer apply.
