    I would guess that the whole-buffer
    buttons are _very_ seldom used.

We could poll the users and see.  If users generally use the
single-item button and not the whole-buffer buttons, I would
not mind simplifying things by eliminating the latter.

    Most often, I just customize a specific variable or face, so 
    for me there really isn't any conceptual difference between 
    a per-variable and whole-buffer action.  So I use the "whole-buffer"
    action buttons at the top of the customize buffer.

For that kind of usage, you could equally well use either interface.
So we could eliminate either one of the two.

    And, when I actually do customize a group of variables, I usually want
    to set/save all the variables that I changed, so again I use the
    "whole-buffer" buttons.

Here's a case of someone who really wants the whole-buffer buttons.

If the two of you can figure out what basic difference leads you to
prefer these different modes of use, we might learn something from
