But wouldn't it be an option to add a `custom-set-fontsets' besides
`custom-set-faces' and `custom-set-variables'? It would make sense IMO
to treat the short alias names that way. I.e. 
`M-x customize-fontset RET fontset-default RET' could simply work and
it could be consistent with the rest of the customization interface
from the user's point of view.

In fact I started to work on it. (That's the deeper reason for my
patch to `set-fontset-font'.) I am mostly in the state of reading the
code for fontsets and for customize respectively, though.

Currently I wonder what the default values should be that a
"fontset-widget" should present to the user. The return-value of
`fontset-info' is simply to large, I think. It seems weird that a user
should specify a fontset covering two or three charsets in her .emacs
or in .Xresources -- and is confronted with a list of dozens of
charsets then, when she wants to customize it later.
