>From my previous message:

   Indeed, %v in :format for 'other will, very misleadingly, present the
   user with an editable field, giving the illusion of a choice, which is
   not really there.

I misunderstood this.  The edited value does indeed seem to get used,
whether it fits the intended meaning of "other" or not.  So if the
:format contains a %v, the user can choose "other" to customize the
option as if it were a 'sexp.

I am not immediately sure whether or not that means that

(define-widget 'other 'sexp

is appropriate after all.
