Re: custom and defalias

    I relatively recently committed the patch below to custom.el.  What
    the patch did was make Custom recognize aliases.  For instance, the
    option `blink-cursor' was recently declared obsolete and made into an
    alias for `blink-cursor-mode'.  Without the patch, if blink-cursor was
    set in the `custom-set-variables' form, it would no longer get recognized.
    After the patch it is recognized.  But then Custom updates the
    obsolete `blink-cursor' with `blink-cursor-mode', which would be
    ideal, except that if one then uses the same custom-set-variables form
    in Emacs 21.3, it does not work any more.

    I do not know what to do with this.

Unless someone has an idea for a change that is clearly desirable,
we should just live with it.
