Yes, sure.

I reacted to the word "transition"**, but of course I'm not opposing
customize-rogue in any way.

**And the reason I reacted is that I hate finding those variables whose
docstrings say "Don't set this directly, use customize".

Two things:

 1.- Not getting the "modified outside of customize" messages that I get
the odd time I use it. If the value is right, I don't see the point of
knowing i.e. if I set custom-file to ".emacs.custom" via setq or through
M-x customize-variable; the message makes me wonder if anything's wrong...

 2.- Using the customized initialization/setting/getting/whatever code
for those variables that have special needs. I'd like to do

  (custom-setq variable value)   ; or whatever

and get customize to check the value against the type spec, etc.
