   When was it changed?  Why?

It is much older than I thought.  It already was the default in 21.3,
unlike what I said in the above quote.  I _thought_ it was relatively
recent, because that change only got documented in the Elisp manual
two years ago.

            * custom.el (custom-declare-variable): Use custom-initialize-reset
            by default, rather than custom-initialize-set.
            (custom-initialize-reset, custom-initialize-set): Doc fixes.
