There seems to be confusion about what initsplit.el does.

It is in fact possible to use M-x customize after things have been
split by initsplit.el.  What it does is let Emacs write all of the
customizations to a single custom-set-variables form in .emacs, then
it walks through that form, stripping out everything it thinks should
go elsewhere, inserting the relevant forms into those elsewhere's
along the way.

So that I still use M-x customize to customize gnus, even though I
have all of my gnus/mail/supercite/mailcrypt, etc., customizations
being saved in .gnus.el.  Add the auto-byte-compilation feature of
initsplit.el, and I've yet to run into problems.
