Whether we want to teach users or not, the above is a bad idea: it is not
good elisp code and noone should write such a thing by hand.  If Custom
wants to show "here's how you can do it by hand" it should show (setq
baud-rate 38400) or something like that (which happens to take only
one-line, by  the way).
