Huh?  Customizing a face now _throws away_ information (that is, every
thing defined by the defface spec except that for the current display),
unless the user selects the more complicated interface.  That seems
pretty problematical to me...

Throwing away this information is bad, I think -- but that's a property
of the (current) UI.

I'm mystified as to how you think that things would be _worse_.

or reason, just a lot of incoherent shrieks and then it's over.  --Ian Wolff
