The reason the header line is nice is that it will remain on the screen
even when you scroll the customize window.  But of course, you cannot
activate it with your mouse.

But it would make sense if C-x C-s saved the settings, while C-c C-c
just set them.

If we don't have a header line, I don't really care whether the
buttons are at the top or at the bottom.
