The problem with "S => C,F" compared to "S => F" is that you may have
saved a set of parameters that does something stupid (e.g. select
black on black text for the default font).

Being able to load such values and edit them before saving them
is very useful.

I don't know if "S =>" imply that we actually read the values from the
custom-file (e.g. .emacs) or if it just restores the value that was
initially read from that file, or the last value that was written by
this emacs to that file.

If it implies reading from the file, this could be used to load
values from a diffent custom-file (to see what they are) before
actually using them.

I prefer "S => F" with a message in the echo area telling the
user to use "Set All" to apply the values.
