In an answer to this I have instead partly rewritten the customize GUI. The
rewrite is for Emacs 21.3.1 and is just a proposal (but a working one I
hope) for how the GUI could look and work. I have uploaded this to EmacsWiki
and you can find it on


  The file name is cus-new-gui.el.

There are no real feature changes, just GUI changes. I feel they are mostly
just finishing work once begun on this GUI. The beginning of the file has
some comments about what I have done.
