So what?  This would come with removing the "Save Options" from the
menus certainly as well: everything else would not make sense.

But we are not looking for a solution for offering a consistent and
suitably nonconfusing interface for Emacs-23.

We are looking for a consistent and suitabley nonconfusing interface
for the next release, Emacs-22.1, with the _current_ version of
Customize.  And the currently existing combination in CVS is
inconsistent and confusing.  There is not much we can do about the
inconsistency as Customize will not change with its semantics until
the release, but we can lessen the confusion this causes.

We need to marry the current, unchanged Customize with the menus in
the best manner for Emacs-22.1.

The future Customize is irrelevant.
