        I'm not sure is documented: subsequent defcustom's redefine
        the `standard'
        value of the variable (that is, the value that you can
        reset to with Reset
        to Standard). The current value is not changed; only the
        `standard' value is

    That seems correct to me.  In particular, it means you can edit the
    defcustom and eval the edited one, and the edit takes effect.

I didn't mean to suggest that this was not the right behavior. I was a bit
surprised, but only because of the leave-alone-if-defined behavior of
defcustom and defvar wrt _current value_. My point is that we should make
sure it is doc'd somewhere (perhaps it is).  - Drew
