   It would require rewriting a single function, custom-save-variables.
   As long as all the 'custom-setq' were required to be at the top level
   of custom-file, I don't think that would be too hard.

Of course, if this were actually implemented, it could eliminate the
need for other solutions, including the (foo value) versus setting
foo to VALUE using Custom convention I advocated in other postings.
(Except in those cases where it would be useful to call foo
interactively or from Lisp.)
