       Question is "from X" or "from Y"?

   Good point. I would think it should be Y.

If instead of `M-: (setq custom-file "Y")' we set custom-file through
Custom, then the up to date Custom Info is _immediately_ in Y, without
having to save any further option.  (Because saving `custom-file'
itself took care of things.)

So if somebody _really_ wants to change Custom file during an emacs
session (instead of from .emacs) the way to do it is through Custom.
