It seems like defcustom composite :type `group' does not work.

See https://emacs.stackexchange.com/q/46357/105.

emacs -Q

(defcustom foo '(1 2 3)
  :type '(group integer integer integer)
  :group 'emacs)

M-x customize-option foo

Shows this message in *Messages*:

custom-variable-value-create: Bad format

And buffer *Customize Option: Foo* is not complete.  I see only this:


Custom settings cannot be saved; maybe you started Emacs with '-q'.
For help using this buffer, see Easy Customization in the Emacs manual.


Operate on all settings in this buffer:
 Revert...   Apply  


The doc says that :type `group' should be very similar to :type `list',
but without tags.
