If I copy that line literally from your .emacs, then what is going to
prevent that line from having exactly the same effect in my .emacs
than it has in yours?  The VALUE you are going to enter through
customize would be "lektu" or whatever, so that value would really
have no effect in my .emacs, where "teirllm" would be required.

   The first one that crossed my mind. But what about those variables whose
   docstring says "Setting this variable directly will have no effect, you
   have to use customize"...? I want to have the option of setting the
   variable directly and getting the customization effect.

`inhibit-startup-echo-area-message'?  It definitely is not one of
those variables.
